WWII England Evacuated Boys

The fortunate boys of Malvern College have been evacuated to Blenheim Palace, where they are living and working in the historic home of the Dukes of Marlborough, which was built and presented to the first famous Duke of Marlborough by a grateful nation after his famous victories of Blenheim, Oudenarde, Ramillies, and Malplaquet on the continent in Queen Anne's reign. The boys are continuing all their normal activities at Blenheim, playing football in the palace grounds and sleeping in dormitories, some of which have priceless tapestries on the walls. Boys reading in one of their dormitories at Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Jan. 9, 1940. Note the priceless tapestries on the walls, protected from damage by boarding. (AP Photo)
