Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 233
20 August 1918 Tuesday Talaat-el-Dumm (X to X crossed out)
Spent the night here & marched again at 0400 which is 4 AM for the Valley- Still very hot & dustier than ever but fewer shells about.
The Culverts & Bridges are nearly all repaired again that Johnny Turk blew up- What destruction is going on all over the world. How long??
X I suppose Joe is in England now? Alls well with Dolly & the Bairn. I get letters about twice a week. X
