Best Answer

Because nobody was expected to drop bombs on the countryside.

From the beginning iof the war, it was expected that Germany would bomb all major cities. The whole country was zoned according to its presumed danger; so London was a place of danger, and children could be sent out for their protection; Devon was a place opf safety, so households could be made to accomodate childre.

This led to one or two curious anomalies. In one North-Eastern area, a port city was directly next to a holiday resort. The city was a place of danger, the resort one of safety. One street ran along the boundary, and in theory a child could be evacuated from one side of the street to the other.

Evacuees had to try to fit in with other children and their families so that they wouldn't feel more emotional about having to leave home. Second answer: The evacuees were primarily sent to farms and country villages. They had to learn to do farm chores and how to play safely in the country. Most of the evacuees had decent experiences but some were abused, had their ration cards stolen from them or were made fun of by the other children or the host families. Some spent hours writing to their families.
