This blog posts extracts from E J Rudsdale's diaries of life on the home front in Britain during the Second World War. Each extract is posted exactly 70 years after it was first written, so follow events through the eyes of a witness to the war.

Maura Benham came along this morning and rode Bob over to Fingringhoe. We had lunch near Rock Farm by the Roman River. It was a beautiful day, and it seemed quite incredible that this was in the middle of a war. We did not talk much war. We picked catkins and left them at Hervey’s place, but he was out.
