Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 288
Went Cairo to get some gold & sundry Kit ready for my second Marching out – I wonder what will be in store this time!!!
Going to dinner with Mardi & Miss Cook tonight at their Pension Heliopolis She gave me a book 2 Kharki handkerchiefs & a Pipe from Aunt Louie & Kathleen. Please thank them in case I cannot write as I am very busy now but hope to do so ere I leave, am taking plenty of paper & envelopes – My job in Camp has been to open dead men's letters & re-address them to senders or destroy if advisable, a pathetic job – people should sign in full.
