'ISLAND offers sanctuary to 14,800 children'.

Interesting story I missed last week on the anniversary of the outbreak of WWII.

This was the lead story in the first Isle of Man Examiner of the Second World War, 70 years ago.

The newspaper reported that boarding house owners had offered places for thousands of evacuees in response to a British government appeal. Much more at the website link above.
