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.
3rd September 1940
There was an alarm from 10.15 – 11am, only 78 came in. Another alarm 9 – 10.30pm. Only 8 in, and they did not stay. Beautiful fine hot day. Park crowded.
