THIS week’s selection of pictures have been sent to the Gazette & Herald by John and Helen Dean, from Beadlam.

They show a group of Second World War evacuees who arrived in Gilling East on September 1, 1939, and remained until February 1940.

The photographs have been on display at Pickering Library and come from an album loaned by a local resident.

The evacuees included 20 boys and six girls, but no one knows where they came from.

Anyone with any information should email
