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.
5th December 1940
Decided to risk going to a cinema this evening, but had not been inside more than half an hour when there was an alarm. Went down to the Castle. Nothing happened, but a plane went over S. of the town, very low, and apparently only one engine working. Whether it was enemy or friendly I do not know.
