Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 262
Wednesday 3rd October 1917
Still flying "Yellow Flag" – one will be like ENOCH ARDEN ere England is reached.
Alongside an ITALIAN Battleship is practising with her big guns – shaking us from stem to stern – a dirigible Balloon spotting for the guns, flies overhead. This is a wonderful harbour the opening no more than a street wide with many storied houses built to waters edge, & the shipping is hidden by the Houses. The days drag on & I'm very hungry to get on our journey.
Post this ITALY.
