Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 298
[Wednesday 25 October 1916]
Still counting Ballot Papers 10 hours a day- The Soldiers fight a lot better than they fill in their voting papers but so far only 1% are informal & the majority is in favour of NO conscription.
Laura called today at Berners Hotel but only saw Dolly- She is coming to dinner tomorrow night I hope. I may be given some leave after this job I hope so.
Had lunch at Army & Navy Club.
Bad news from Roumanians & the war is a long way from over yet
The Votes here goes against conscription.
