Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 210
[Saturday 29 July 1916]
While scribbling these notes little curls of yellow smoke from Bursting Turks shells are above the Palms-
All day we have been at it-
The 6th lost an officer & 2 men & we a few but (and) we are keeping them back.
I only hope they come on & make a good fight- this endless watching gets on our nerves.
Anniversary of outbreak of War, How long will it last?
Had to dig fresh Wells today to water our Horses as Johnny Turk had our old ones.
