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.
12th May 1940
We could hear A.A. firing this morning. At 1 o’clock eleven planes flew over, going east and about 3 eight came back, so I suppose they had been over to Holland or Belgium bombing. Soldiers seem to have been allowed out again today. Beautiful fine weather.
