In 1940, when Adolf Hitler’s troops invaded the peaceful Channel Island community of Guernsey, the eight-year-old John Blanchard was one of thousands of school children who were hastily evacuated from the island and remained cut off from all contact with their homes and families for the next five years. He became a Christian on his return to the island in his teens.

Eric Liddell’s story has often been told, not least of all in the 1981 film Chariots of fire.
