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.

Grand surprise this morning – a letter from Meg [MacDougall], very depressed about the future of her museum [at Inverness].Must write to her about museum affairs here.
Lot of searchlights out tonight, making a fine sight.Did not feel very well, and spent a quiet warm evening in my cosy little room, then bed after drinking hot milk.
