Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 118
27 April 1918 Saturday
Our 60 lbs Howitzers V Krupp all the morning.
Madeba Troop got in with 3 Horses killed 3 men wounded.
Rumours that we are really to be relieved soon but no leave yet for me- "
Many pity women who knew it all before you" & is rough on the wife.
We got a 28 bore Shotgun but cartridges are loaded with shrapnel bullets so not much use on Partridge- The men use shrapnel to play marbles with after a scrap has scattered some about, splendid ammunition for Shanghais
