The Evacuee Collection

By 1941 rationing for clothing was a very real part of life and children’s clothing had to be practical and hard wearing – this meant the same garment needed to be suitable for everyday and special occasions. In a slight departure from the other collections we feature two uniforms – that would have been worn by adults – to show how important the different roles at home were to the war effort.

Home Guard Officer £29

The texture of the fabric has been printed onto the cloth. The uniform also needs to be worn with a tie.
