Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 20
The days are becoming shorter & the nights colder as we move away from the Equator it is winter in Egypt & I expect cold enough at night.
To date 7 horses have died, mostly from Pneumonia –
Day follows day, stables routine broken by Rifle inspection, we are able to walk the horses all the way around the ship.
Orderly officer today.
