Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 262
18 September 1918 Wednesday
Am afraid will get no leave this month now a Stunt is on- I told you I give up the Flat & move Dolly to Villa Montrose Heliopolis where Mardi stayed Oct 1st unfortunately D.S.O. does not mean L.S.D. but we live within our income & Dolly gets 400/-/- certain.
Fever still bad among the men but "morale" good. Paid all hands today & gambling schools in full blast mostly two-up.
Big guns busy on our left this morning shows the game has started, they roll & echo again in the Wadi.
