Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 159
7 June 1918 Friday
Marched all night again in Clouds of DUST I saw a car with axles deep in nothing but dust- we just blindly follow the horse in front- "Cum-lila-cum-loo" as the gippy sings meaning
"How many days"
"& How many nights ere I "
"See my beloved again"
Very hot, I may have a "figure" again after a month or so down here- still FAT!!- The Priests in Bethlehem promised to say a Mass for me!!! every morning when they heard we were going to
Jericho Valley, but I'm quite fit & well- The mere name of the place in Summer frightened them.
