If you have browsed to this journal without being referred by a family member or interested party, you may struggle to know where to start. This guide is intended to help you.

Followers of most blogs would expect to read the latest post(s) found at the top of the page, and would not often want to go to the oldest posts first. This journal however is a chronological diary of events from 1931 to 1945, and is meant to be read as a story. The content of the more recent posts will be difficult to appreciate fully without reading the rest of the story first. Rather like starting a novel from the last chapter!

To start from the beginning, just scroll down the page until you see a heading called 'Archives' to the right of the journal entries. Click on the third entry 'September 2006' below that, and when the page loads scroll right down to the bottom - you will now be at the start of the journal and can start reading, working your way up to the top.

When you have reached the top of the page, just go back to the 'Archives' list on the right and click on the next one down 'October 2006', scroll to the bottom and start reading 'up' again - and so on...
