Just one day into this blog and I awoke this morning to a number of correspondents pointing out the name of the blog matches that of the book by John Hughes-Wilson and Cathryn Corns. This is indeed correct.
The term ‘Blindfold and Alone’ originally comes from the epitaph The Coward by Rudyard Kipling..
I could not look on death, which being known,
Men led me to him, blindfold and alone.
This blog will consist purely of material drawn the files held at the National Archives in London. It is in no way connected to the work, views and opinions of John Hughes-Wilson and Cathryn Corns and will not contain any extracts from their book.
