On the 1st september 1939, thousands of children from Britain's towns and cities were forced to say goodbye to their families.
For many of the children in the North, their destination was the lake district; a place which became a safe haven during the 2nd world war.
On the train from Newcastle to Kendal that day was Peggy Kunzlik.
