Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 339
Monday 31 December 1917
Inspected by Lt. General Chauvel our old Brigadier this morning. I go so soon as the Railway is available to take me, so will see Jerusalem very soon I hope now.
Current topic of conversation is the failure of Conscription. This may let JOE get away but I do hope he won't throw up his job. We all remember the anxiety before he got it & it is more secure than ever a Station Manager's.
