The Fosters’ living room Saturday 2 September War now imminent. Chamberlain being pushed on by Opposition and others. m. 30 service. 15 Chamberlain broadcast and as soon as he had finished the local air raid warning started. There was a panic among people in the street. I told the congregation, who came out and wanted to disperse, that it was only sounded to say war was declared.

He valued integrity and honesty, and had no respect for those of his superiors who lacked these qualities. Rodney was a professional and conscientious member of the Home Guard, and worked extremely hard for a country in which he was not born and in which he spent only ten of his first fifty years. He laboured far more than the maximum forty-eight hours a month on duty, spending each morning in the office or delivering uniforms, weapons and ammunition, dedicating countless hours to putting his men through their paces on the parade ground or the rifle range, and putting himself on patrol most nights.

Rodney is a compulsive chronicler of the everyday, the routines and small events that make up our lives. His diaries throw a spotlight on the lives of his family, friends and Home Guard colleagues as they fight their own battles, and win their own wars, on the Home Front. To read these diaries is to step back into Hellfire Corner at the height of the Battle of Britain, and to stand shoulder to shoulder with the brave civilians who risked their lives defending civilization. Rodney Foster was born in Saugor, in central India, on 27 May 1882, into a British Army family.
