Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 26
Thursday 25 January 1917
Moved out to
El Burj & took over Command of B Squadron the old Squadron I had on the Peninsular as the late Major has been sent back for a mistake he made.
[The remainder of the page crossed through] I am in Order as a Tempy. MAJOR at last, so am not keen to go to Col. Meredith now.
However we will see, but I'll wear a Crown while I'm here any way. Received letter from home – Wife & Mrs. Ferran also Papers.
Don't put much in Papers about my majority till I tell you it is in Orders, it takes time to come back from the Base.
