Evacuation

Eva Forbes was the daughter of Edwin Henry and Celestina Summers and sister of Alec and Charles Summers. She married Robert Fraser Forbes and was probably evacuated to Australia with her three children, as the Australian Electoral Roll puts her as living in Queensland in 1943. Neither she nor her husband appear on subsequent Electoral Rolls. Their children were Monica, Jean and Robert Forbes, who remained in Queensland. Many thanks to annpake for this research.
