Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 205
Wednesday 8 August 1917
Arrived 1.30 p.m. or 13.30 as we write it – sent to No. 10 Convalescent Hospital, a fine building taken over from a HUN, cotton Merchant facing the sea, in nice grounds. Here I expect to stay one week then back to Palestine.
Am feeling fitter but very slack.
A mixture of Tommy Officers & Australians are here, they do not always blend well. But Scotties & Colonials do -
it is the younger English pups speak so disparagingly of our folk – However!!! A lot of them bring it on themselves.
