Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 209
[Friday 28 July 1916]
The 7th L.H. ran into a bit of an ambush this morning & had some casualties the Turks keep pushing their outposts towards us in the night.
Arrived back to Bivouac this morning & out again tonight.
This is the day we expected Johnnie Turk to attack but he has not shown up yet. I have classed my small Kit into what I can carry & what throw away & am already for eventualities
Scribbling these notes each day keep me in touch with you,
little Mother & that far away dusty little town €“ I hope you are keeping well to meet me when I come home once more.
