Item 02: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 2 January-31 December 1916 - Page 326
[Wednesday 22nd November 1916]
Agean Sea once more en route for Salonika
Last night another heavy sea arose & the ship registered 41 ° list- about midnight a very heavy sea struck us- I jumped up & put on life belt, quite sure we had been torpedoed but she is still going strong. Our escort keeps dodging about in front & I think we can trust the NAVY to look after us. Nearly all the troops are for
Salonika & many Officers only for Egypt.
We are among the Archipelago islands now, not far off
Lemnos & Mudros again expect to reach Salonika midday tomorrow, no use posting letters there -
Sea calmer, weather colder.
