The material in this section is kindly provided by Gerald Hoare (son of Rita Gómez Mateo – Maestra (teacher) who accompanied the children on the "Habana" and remained with them at Moorhill House, Southampton from autumn 1937 to December 1939).

Gerald has painstakingly researched, scanned and collated various source documents to prepare these lists.
