Robert Hudson – The experience of an evacuee

In February 2017 Robert Hudson left a brief comment on one of the posts, on Quorn Village On-line Museum’s Facebook page, and in it he mentioned that he had been evacuated to Quorn, from Hove during WW2.

Sue Templeman asked Robert if he could write a piece about his experiences, and he kindly agreed. The result is the attached account, which not only paints a fascinating picture of what it was like to be evacuated in Quorn during WW2, but also includes a lovely photograph of the children enjoying the harvest in the fields off Buddon Lane.
