At the end of the Second World War, many people, including children then at school, received a Certificate of Thanks signed by Royalty for their fortitude and help in winning the war.

Certificates were also sent to the people who took evacuees into their homes in the reception areas, but no message of thanks was sent to those who had been evacuees.

At last that omission is being rectified. A certificate of Recognition is now available from the British Evacuees Association. Order yours now, many hundreds of former evacuees have already done so, as well as former evacuees family members in their relatives memory.

The minimum donation required towards the costs involved in the making and placing of the National Memorial to the Evacuation at the National Memorial Arboretum and of the production and distribution of the certificates is £10.

Please note that the name of every person receiving a Certificate of Recognition will be entered into a Register; a copy of which will be available for inspection at the National Memorial Arboretum, also at the office of The British Evacuees Association, unless we are specifically requested otherwise.
