World War ll London Blitz:  Buy On Smashwords
Yoga Fairy Coloring Book by Adele Aldridge Buy on Amazon

I am the great-granddaughter of Ruby Side Thompson. 

Recently I started re-reading the World War ll journals and felt that they were such an important part of a history that will soon be forgotten if not published and shared with the world. These diary excerpts are not the entirety of what is published in print and kindle.

Ruby grew up during a time when education was just beginning to be encouraged for both upper and middle class women. During the late 1890's Ruby explored many radical political ideas of London, England. She met many famous people including the writers George Bernard Shaw and William Butler Yeats.  5.0 out of 5 stars A choice pick, not to be overlooked, November 6, 2011 By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

 


World War ll London Blitz: 6-24-43 The R.A.F. is bombing Europe both day and night.

Purchase Diary's :

June 24, 1943

Joan came and spent the day with us last Tuesday; the first time I have seen her in a couple of months. She tells me bombs have destroyed Hampshire Hog House. (Another part of my youth gone.) We have been having raids practically every night these past three weeks. I come downstairs, but Ted remains in bed. The war is awful, worse and worse. The R.A.F. is bombing Europe both day and night. Yesterday the B.B.C. told us that during the past twenty-four hours we had two thousand bombers over Germany. The Americans go by day; the R.A.F. by night and still it goes on!
