Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 251
7 September 1918 Saturday (X to X crossed out)
Thermometer has been over 100° everyday but much cooler than the past month!
Gift stuff from N.S.W. Comfort Fund arrived today & as we have plenty of water we are O.K. Did I tell you what happened to A.J.C. gifts on July 14: the Germans got them from the 2nd LH & then we took them back again.
X A consignment of BEER has also arrived I am a great believer in letting the men get good "grog" better than [indecipherable] buying poisonous KONIACK of the country.X
