Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 194
Saturday 28 July 1917
In the Trenches again but at a new Post called Y Redoubt – this gives the Horses a rest after their past 3 weeks hard riding. I am thankful as I have a Septic Boil which crucifies my leg when I move & means continuous foments daily. I suppose it's the Tucker.
Flies worse here but am glad to get off riding – while leg bad. The L.H. are a versatile crowd – can take their turn as Pioneers, Railway construction or Trench digging – etc:-
Comfort Fund sent the men tinned vegetables & Tobacco much appreciated.
