Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 179
27 June 1918 Thursday
Last night, Jacko more active, stronger Patrols, Colored lights & a lot of artillery kept us from sleeping- but don't feel so feverish this morning- RAMADAN time of fasting is now
over on so Jacko may be feeling agressive. The Water we use for washing out of the adjoining swamp is so salt, a mans shirt is like a board & a thin white layer remains on the SKIN after washing-
1 man killed 3 wounded by Shells today-
Ramadan finishes about 10th July but we are not worrying.
