Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 14
13 January 1918 Sunday
No Transport till 2 o'clock 4 inches rain fell & one of the coldest nights I ever experienced-
This evening in the wind I put my Bivy up it got torn to pieces I am now in a dugout & hope no Bronchitis will result- Joe's leather waistcoat saved me from Pneumonia because water will not go through it-
Feed is growing & soon the wild flowers will be blossoming again- The Bedouins are busy putting in their Crops.
