By 1st September , war with Germany seemed inevitable. Although nothing was official, people feared they would be attacked as soon as war was declared, so evacuation began days before Prime Minister Chamberlain declared war over the wireless. The Liverpool Corporation arranged for children to be moved to the quiet countryside of Cheshire and North Wales, where they would be much safer from bomb attacks. Many children were evacuated by ship from Liverpool to Canada, South Africa, New Zealand or Australia and many of these evacuees never returned home. However hard it might have been, for many parents this was one way to ensure their children would survive even if Britain was invaded.

Chris Leadbeater Families planning to visit South Africa to enjoy a safari holiday or a few days amid the grand scenery and historic sights of Cape Town may find themselves mired in red tape after regulations on entering the country with children were significantly tightened. As of next Monday June 1 , anyone arriving in South Africa in the company of a child will have to prove parenthood or guardianship — while lone adults flying in with their offspring will have to show that they have the consent of their non-travelling partner. The rule change — which was supposed to come into force in October last year, but was postponed by eight months — is designed to counter child-trafficking operations on the African continent. But tour operators and airlines are fearful that the move will deter families from journeying to an exotic destination which has become a holiday favourite. As of next week, parents will have to be able to demonstrate that any children aged under 18 in their company are their own, by providing their birth certificates to immigration officials.
