Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 22
[Friday January 21 1916]
Beautiful days & cold frosty nights bright starlight & endless desert very like Western NSW in Winter.
[Following paragraph is crossed out] Omit :
Received mails more regularly now- letters from Mother Dec.3 Nyle Ritchie same date , also papersMy address is now Capt. A Squadron, not Head Quarters
The good folk at home should send NO more Winter clothing or Soks for some time the men have plenty & by the time this is received & answered say 2 months, the Winter will be over & the heat begun again.
People have been wonderfully good at sending us Soldiers Comforts
