The publication of the blog has enabled E.J. Rudsdale's journals to reach a worldwide audience and has allowed greater detail from his diaries to be published beyond that which it was possible to include in the book, 'E.J. Rudsdale's Journals of Wartime Colchester'.
The blog has made many connections for people researching their Essex family history in this period and it has been a joy to receive details of your stories and research in this regard.
I hope to publish E.J. Rudsdale's peacetime journals for Colchester from 1920 to 1939 and for Wisbech from 1945 to 1951 in the future and details will be published on this website at a future date.
Thank you again for your loyal support and kind encouragement. It has been a great pleasure to share E.J. Rudsdale's experiences of the Second World War with you.
With best wishes,
