In the dark days of 1940 during the Blitz, a massive relocation campaign had begun in Britain concerning children living in the danger areas of large metropolitan cities. As a result, they were being evacuated to small country villages around England, but also to Commonwealth and Allied countries willing and able to take them.

On October 13th 1940, the 14-year old Princess Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret, went before the microphone to deliver a pep talk to the children now away from their homes and scattered, in some cases, all over the world.

Here is that complete radio address from 72 years ago.
