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.
9th June 1941
Alarm last night from 12.30 to half past one. Heard bombs drop somewhere in the distance. Fine early, but dull later on, turning to rain at night.
Went over to Birch for a Committee. Nothing of note. Drove the jennet for an hour tonight.
