Readers of Eric's blog might be interested to learn of a new blog which posts wartime letters written by J W N Broom to his family, entitled: Onward Christian Soldier. Broom served with the Royal Army Medical Corps in the Second World War and his letters detail his experiences. Broom was born in Colchester in 1916, making him a near contemporary of Eric Rudsdale's and his letters provide an interesting parallel to Eric's blog, especially as they both shared a pacifist outlook.
John Broom, J W N Broom's son, has set up this blog and is preparing the letters for future publication. Thank you, John, for letting me know about your blog. CP
