From 1st January 2012, 70 years from when they were written, a matching pair of diary entries is being published for each day of the year.
Frustratingly, the diaries are very small (6.5 cm x 9.5 cm), and Bill's handwriting is tiny and often very difficult to read, which is why *** appears in the text every now and again. Scans of the pages are published online for anyone who likes a puzzle. Please add a comment if you can fill in any gaps.
Why not check out the 17th Century Physician's Handbook.
or some superb fashion illustrations drawn by Bill before the war.
