Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 213
We are more settled today but the ship is very dirty & we have 200 more men than room for.
We change into destroyers & mine sweepers tomorrow night –
Just washed a shirt so as to be clean. What men want training in in Australia is Rapid fire Musketry & Trench work.
I was sorry to leave my horses but glad to get away from the Desert & into the firing line.
