Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 334
Wednesday 26 December 1917
Camped night at Moascar & took charge of Draft of 300 men for the front. I am glad in a way to get into the firing line as I feel I've been away too long – Conscience easier.
Many men make Xmas just an excuse for getting drunk. I may get the job at Moascar later on meantime Dolly will work at No. 14 A.G.H. Posting this love to all. I've not wished anyone a Merry Xmas, it seems a farce.
