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.
3rd February 1942
Tremendous snow fall during the night. Banks 2’6” deep against the Castle door. Roads are in a terrible state. Coal-carts coming up from the station to Magdalen St. with two horses. There was some snow all day until the afternoon, when it began to thaw again.
Went to the cinema this evening, being suddenly tempted, when I ought to have been working.
