Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 158
Saturday 16 June 1917
[The following paragraph crossed through.] Lost a horse last night & found him in Camel Officers lines – one of our men had been promised a carton of whisky for a Horse. To such a state have morals sunk but Officers!! should not encourage such jobbery. Horses are much prized by Camel Officers – handier than Camels.
On the range again today getting men accustomed to the new High Velocity Rifles - & ammunition. Dust continuous & the Beach seems afar off.
