Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 41
9 February 1918 Saturday
Still raining & snow on the Hills just heard WADI GHUZZI washed Railway Line away again so rations & horsefeed will be scarcer.
Oranges are now issued in lieu of vegetables.
The horse Lines get ankle deep in mud & we've not had a decent wash for days-
Rum issue every night. Boils under both arms & Skin trouble little better, only trifles, but not pleasant in the wet soldiering.
