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 was posted exactly 70 years after it was first written, marking the 70th anniversary of the Second World War between 2009-2015.
Short extracts will now be published on Twitter and will link to this blog to mark the 80th anniversary of the Second World War starting from 3 September 2019.
I heard today that a Colchester man, who lives in Wellington St., and is a conscientious objector, has been put in an army prison in the Isle of Man, and has been badly hurt for refusing to obey military orders. May the Gods protect him.
