Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 312
Tuesday 4 December 1917
Last night at dinner we bumped into something & everyone stood up – it may have been wreckage. This morning at 4 a.m. we got S.O.S. again from a boat in our rear, which had been torpedoed but we seem to be protected too well by our escort. It is moonlight at 4 a.m. Only about 4% of sinkings occur in the dark. Calmer & warmer.
I've written Laura & a few others but no use posting to you till we arrive Egypt, will post others Malta.
