Booklet kept by Miss Neville-Kaye while a teacher at Overbury Primary School evacuated to Lee, near Ilfracombe in Devon, June 1940 - October 1942.

Mary Neville-Kaye: Jottings From an Evacuee Teacher

Five handwritten pages recording Mary Neville-Kayes experiences as a teacher evacuated to Lee, Devon in charge of twenty children. Note that the author states she left Croydon in 1941 although the school log book and AR172/1 indicate that she was evacuated in June 1940. The hand is increasingly difficult to read suggesting that these are rough notes of a planned article.
