Hi my name is Sheelagh O'Shaughnessy and im an evacuee from Silverton in East London,
This is my mum and my brother. My dad had died just before the war. My mum looks after our newsagent.
A relative insisted that we got evacuated with the other children at my school but she didn't want to be seperated from us.
I remember the bus journey from Silvertown Viaduct to Paddington Station and the fact that parents weren't allowed to see us off. Lots of the children were sick on the bus ride.
We ended up in a hall at Albert Street in Oxford. We were all very tired and we had to walk about in groups while the billeting officer knocked on doors we were almost the last to be picked because no one wanted us.
Our parents hated us and they told us that they didn't want us. My real parents still were aloud to see me but the authorities didn't think it was a good idea.
I don't want you.
