Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 274
30 September 1918 Monday
10 000 prisoners surrendered to our Division & we had to help protect them from the Arabs. These were cut off south of Amman- A strange phenomenon happened about noon, a distinct earth tremor, I thought at first it must be my head going round with fever- till others spoke about it. We celebrated our victory with a grand dinner- Fish killed with gun cotton- Fowls from village, Blackberries from the Wadi- game is plentiful, gazelle, Hare partridge, curlew, & CANARIES a few snipe & duck in Wadi, but have no gun.
