A hero called Tom Bawcock went out to catch fish, for his village so the villagers didn’t starve at Christmas day.
Tom Bawcock lived in Mousehole, at the south west Cornwall, in England in a small village, at the far end of England.
“Just before Christmas the storm happened, it was the worst storm in a hundred years.”
“When I saw the lanterns I thought they were showing the way home and they were worried, hungry and frightened. I caught so many fish it would last, a life time.” Tom told us. “Just before Christmas I got up really early and back late I spent all day fishing. The reason I went out into the in the storm, is because they was no food we, couldn’t get any supplies because the roads were cut off.” Did you try to go through? “No we didn’t.”
How did you survive the storm “Mowzer started singing and that seemed to calm the storm down.” Why did you take your cat with you “Mowzer and I go everywhere together,” How did you feel when you saw the lantern “I felt so happy and relieved when I saw them, after we got through the Mousehole I placed my boat and some men unloaded my boat and brought the fish into the ship inn and we had a fish feast and a lantern parade.”
