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.
12th June 1941
Cloudy, dull, and some rain. Councillor Hayward’s funeral today. In the morning the Borough Flag was half mast, but at 10 o’clock a Union Jack was hoisted full-mast, then after lunch the half mast Borough flag was back again. Most odd.
