Woke up feeling very bad indeed. Did practically nothing all day. Just thirty years ago I was on the beach at Lowestoft watching the warships rushing south.
Rudsdale was then four years old on the day the First World War began on 4th August 1914. The Rudsdale family were on holiday in Lowestoft at the time, witnessing the passage of the warships on the North Sea.
Back to Boxted early, and dozed on bed. Had to leave for Observer Post, 12.30am.
