Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 117
[Wednesday 26 April 1916]
Court again all day I'm doing all the writing & have no time to write a word to you & it is an awful scribble sometimes my fountain pen's good more often damnable. Word has come we have had a reverse on the Canal a matter of Outposts only, but its bad news- & I would be with the Division now, if not on this Court martial, but this is good experience. I have written 148 pages of evidence so far.
Very hot & court crowded with unwashed Natives. The INDIAN SIKHS are fine clean good looking Soldiers.
