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.

Heavy rain tonight (St Swithin’s Day), and the Castle was flooded owing to blocked drains. Bought very good cherries today at 1/8 a pound.
