Tom Critchley's Letters 1940 to 1941

Regular readers of Eric's blog may be interested to know that you can now access Tom Critchley's Letters from 1940 to 1941 via a new blog. Tom Critchley wrote vivid accounts of what it was like to live through the London Blitz during 1940 to 1941 in letters to his family. The archive is also a remarkable record of his reactions to war and the social changes he witnessed as a result of the conflict. My thanks go to Barbara Critchley for her excellent work in compiling this blog. CP
