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.
27th October 1940
To Mill all a.m., chopping firewood. Alarm – 4pm-7pm. Tea at Rose’s. Hampshire took my dogcart phaeton over to Hadleigh today. Was sorry to see it go, but what’s the good of keeping it if I don't drive it? Beautiful night, but no more alarms. Went to Seymour’s.
