On their own - Britain's child migrants

Happy 10th birthday

card with a picture of a dog and message 'To greet my son's birthday'

Herbert received this birthday card from his mother in 1930. The card was signed by his stepbrother and stepsister, but not his sister Anne, who had been placed in a children’s home in Birmingham. It would be 46 years before Herbert and Anne met again.
