Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 231
18 August 1918 Sunday Enab. (X to X crossed out)
Arrived Enab 12 noon- & camped near Vineyard X hard work to keep men from looting grapes, Melons etc:- one feels knowing what is in front in the Jordan Valley that they should eat all they can but we British are so particular in enemy occupied country- X Bedouins rob us, but we must not even take a bit of wood. The Camel men complain they find Cavalry life harder, too much going to Water, cannot carry same quantity of Kit & have no "Firewood" supplied by their mount- You know Camel dung will cook anything.
