Reviews & Comments

For some two decades after World War II, the British government sent an estimated 130,000 children to various Commonwealth countries, most controversially Australia. Some were orphans, others the children of single mothers. Mothers would be told their child had been put up for adoption or had died. Once abroad, the children would be put in institutions. The host countries welcomed the children as a means of population increase. For Britain, it was a way to lower the cost of social services.
