Russel also mentioned that he'd been evacuated twice during the war. First from Cowan Terrace School via Millfield station and Bishp Auckland to Leasingthorne, a mining village that I think is no longer there. Second evacuation was from Cowan Terrace to Middleham, North Yorks via Leyburn. Returned from Middleham to West Park Central for a very short stay, then to J.T.S.
