Item 03: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1917 - Page 46
Wednesday 14 February 1917
Marched on to BAYOUD – do you remember me telling you of our first fight here early in June last year 8 months ago – The sand hummocks have blown a bit but I never expected to be here again. However the Yeomanry left their Tents standing & also some SCENT Candles, a bottle of Beer etc. We were very glad to have such good accommodation. I don't feel much older but I know I look it. I only hope ere another year comes around I may be home in Australia
with my new wife even if it is to fight Droughts, Fires, Floods etc. TELL JOE I am sure Dolly would like a letter from him.
