EDITORS COMMENTS
In this poignant photograph taken circa 1942, a group of Barnardo's evacuees sit on the ancient stone wall of Comlongon Castle in Dumfries, Scotland. During the tumultuous years of the Second World War, this historic property was repurposed as a temporary home for children who had been evacuated from urban areas to escape the ravages of war. The Barnardo's organization, founded by Thomas Barnardo in 1866, had long been dedicated to the care and welfare of orphaned, abandoned, and neglected children. With the onset of war, the need for their services grew exponentially. Thousands of children were evacuated from cities under threat of bombing raids to safer rural areas, and Barnardo's stepped up to provide shelter, education, and a sense of normalcy for these displaced children. Comlongon Castle, with its rich history and picturesque surroundings, offered a unique and welcoming environment for the evacuees. The children in this photograph appear to be engaged in a moment of respite, their expressions revealing a mix of curiosity, contentment, and perhaps a hint of wistfulness. The castle's towering walls and lush gardens served as a backdrop to their daily lives, providing a sense of security and stability in uncertain times. This image offers a glimpse into a pivotal moment in history, when the community came together to support and protect the most vulnerable members of society. The Barnardo's evacuees at Comlongon Castle are a testament to the enduring spirit of compassion and resilience that has long defined the human experience.
