Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 53
21 February 1918 Thursday (X to X crossed out)
This morning the Bells in Jericho were ringing till the Turks opened fire on it again-
X We got a few prisoners but all stores had been taken- low fogs saved us from being bombed visibility bad- Capt Hurley the Official photographer came with the Anzac Division X- Our horses were 2 days without water
We took Neby Musa, or tomb of Moses, on which place no Jew or Christian has set foot for 80 years.
X The Mohommedan's would accept no fee for the privilege X- Washed my feet in the Waters of the Jordan & camped at the foot of a Greek Rock Cell Monastery where our Saviour fasted for 40 days & 40 nights- These Cells are like Dove cots high in the mountain side.
