Item 01: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 19 December 1914-31 December 1915 - Page 339
18 December Saturday 1915
Anniversary of leaving Camp Holdsworthy: who could have fOreseen all that has happened since. It is hard to be violently interested in the small happenings of life, when on a stint of the present magnitude – I am pushed up on a Hill & if I live through the next 48 hours will have something to tell you I cannot write now.
Cuth Fetherstonhaugh is to be with me in this position – so I am in good company – can you read this scribble "ars longa vita brevis" As some of my Squadron leave first I send this
Love to you all.
