Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 267
23 September 1918 Monday
21 000 prisoners 190 guns now- Jacko clearing out as usual we rode all night & all day & now expect to go Es Salt way again-
Handley Page [plane] flew over us & must put the wind up Jacko. Prisoners are a poor lot, not many Germans- Nights & days merge into one- it is hard to keep count- in one square acre I saw a British West Indian Sikh NZder Australian, Tommy Frenchman Cavalry & a Tartar & a German so I think & hope we have left the Jordan forever, now marching in Judean Hills on Es Salt.
