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.
30th January 1942
Heavy rain this afternoon, and then snow, blowing hard. Kept on all the evening.
About 10, when going to the post, saw a light on the top of the Town Hall, so I suppose they must have a watchman up there.
