Item 04: Frank Valentine Weir letter diary, 1 January-31 December 1918 - Page 54
22 February 1918 Friday
On Outpost Jordan Valley
Five Taubes flew over, but did not bomb us, clouds too low- Jacko kept his Field guns going last night but seems to have gone this morning-
The Infantry are now up & we withdraw towards Jerusalem - The Turks cut the tendons of an Arab's hand, who would not fight against us- we found him in Jericho
Curlew were heard last night & this morning some Native companions flew over- Did not see anything of Jacko's launches which were reported on the Dead Sea- the scenery all round is very grand & impressive- I send you photo of the Cave Cell Monastery on the Mt of Temptation.
