After war was declared on Germany in 1939 it was envisaged that the prime target of Germany would by the city of London. The government devised a plan that all children, and all those women who were not on any form of service should be sent to safer areas in Britain. Although many children had been evacuated in the early months of the war, the largest evacuation from London started on 1st September 1939.

This original brass George VI three-pence is attached to a card with an image of children waiting to be evacuated on the front and historical information on the reverse.
