Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 193
[Wednesday 12 July 1916]
Every tent has a Chameleon these days, they take me back to a School Break Up many years ago & the "PIECE" I had to recite-
Here, one Tommy says they even turn the color of the
net meshes in the Mosquitoe Netts.
A Chameleon lives on Flies so is never hungry here & is valued at 6 packets of Cigarettes.
I had one in my Tent in No 2 General Hospital Pretoria.
