Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 123
2 May 1918 Thursday
Freezing at dawn but now at time of writing roasting hot as we came off the highlands back towards J. Valley- have not had my boots off or a wash, much less a shave since stunt commenced-
Our H.D.C. had a bad time-
Germans Austrians among Turks taken prisoner.
Sleep now if possible-
Marched again all night had to carry
a wounded men on foot 7 miles over mountains, as no wheels can come near us, & we have no Camel Cacholets.
