Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 308
[Saturday 4 November 1916]
A Hospital Boat has just passed us, with wounded & I'm going back "cured" what a funny way it is to see the world!!!
We never are to take our life Belts off, eat in them & sleep in them-
A Destroyer accompanies us
The troops on board are for Salonika & we may go round that way & so be 3 weeks on board
We may also go Via
Malta which place I have not yet seen.
We get wireless news of the war every day.
Weather rough & nearly all troops are sick!
