Rosie Pugh - 1941-42

Rosie was evacuated to Wales as a 6 year old and caught TB.

Among her many recollections of her time there are memories of a "nurse who brought in comics, being on complete bedrest on the balcony, sleeping under tarpaulin sheets and being terrified to go to sleep at night because of the noise of the owls. And at night the children died."

Rosie is the latest of a number of ex-patients to have given a full oral history recording to Cynthia Mullane at the Sleeping Giant Foundation, the organisation helping me with my research.
