Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 128
Monday 7 May 1917
This morning we all went through GAS fumes with Helmets on a suffocating business. Enemy bombed Hospitals during night & Killed & wounded many. From the Outpost here today I could see the train leaving Beersheba. We will have a lot of hard fighting ere we enter Jerusalem. As a chance occurs I'll post this.
Love to all
