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.
6th October 1940
Dull day. Some rain. Some planes were over during the morning, and I could hear distant bombs while I was at Bourne Mill. Tea at Rose’s then went to Seymour’s. Heavy rain tonight.
