Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 144
[Wednesday 24 May 1916]
Our Patrol were in touch with the Tank Patrols today & exchanged a few shots
The N.Zealanders lost a Pack Horse.
All hands hope for a good scrap soon to balance a/c for the Yeomanry losses.
The more one sees of the latter smash, the less palatable it appears.
Boils again on the arms.
You might post me a Packet of Mighty Coal Tar soap, it lathers in the Brackish Water. We sleep in our Boots & Clothes every night but nobody minds as we are on the "job" again now.
