Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 149
[Monday 29 May 1916]
We are doing a lot of night Patrolling now, the Turks follow us back & signal with Electric torches but you may hear of us doing something worth while shortly, a 3 days Stunt. Camels carry our Water, they are absolutely silent at night, great gaunt animals they look very weird & all that can be heard is the swish of the Water in the Fantassies Copper or Iron Water Tanks- holding 15 gallons each, 2 to a Camel- on each side of Pack.
Move out at 10 pm for ---------
Big case of Mufflers Mits, Balaclavas etc arrived for men, such a waste at this time of the Year
