Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 121
Monday 30 April 1917
Posted notes yesterday acknowledging letters from home March 19. Quite cold for a change. We are still having a rough time.
[The following sentence crossed through.] I am glad JOE saw he is indispensable at home & doing more than his Bit.
I look forward to a reunion some day soon. Enemy plane with black + on wings is soaring above me as I write, & the little rings of bursting shells from our Anti aircraft now all around her but never hit – as far as we know. On Outpost last night & digging Trenches today with Stables, to do it gives little time for the men to cook, delouse themselves or sleep – but men & horses are fit & cheery.
Wise not to discuss my DIARY if Military is hearing.
