Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 180
[Thursday 29 June 1916]
Court Martial this morning I am Prosecutor. Poor beggar he is charged with "Asleep on his Post" it is no wonder, & the sea air & night duties, it is hard to keep awake.
Just got a letter from Laura telling me of young Charlie's wedding it certainly was kept very dark, he has been engaged for a year & 4 months she tells me, such a Kid too- he has certainly beaten his Uncles- rather upsets Braces intentions I expect-
WAR Brides are certainly the fashion even for Boys, what does he know of the World!!! All for the best I hope.
