Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 195
Went to Mess to 17 Infantry Battalion, very hot all day –
City of Cairo very quite now that Police close up 10 a.m.
Pay day today I'm getting quite good at Piastres.
Letter from James, Charlie is alright, but the Major is doing nothing.
