When the Germans started bombing the Cornish ports in 1941, Evelyn Hugo’s parents sought safety by marching their children fifteen miles to a derelict cottage on the north coast, carrying all their possessions in the baby’s pram. Roscroggan should have been an idyllic setting for a ten-year-old to grow up in, but the hardships of the war years were compounded by increasing economic strife as the family grew bigger – within a few years she found herself the eldest of nine – and her father struggled to earn a living wage.
