Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 29
At "Suez", [indecipherable] barracading the Bridge & wheel house with Bags of Oats as "snipers" line the Canal to have a pot shot at Steamers as they pass if conveying Troops.
Will endeavour to post at Alexandria on arrival.
Among my Pictures at [indecipherable] was a colored photo of a steamer 'in' the Canal I think both banks look like the backcountry after a drought!!
As the boats go along, from the harbour, they have the appearance of steaming across a sandy plain the entrance not being visible from where we lie at anchor.
