Cpl. John Wishart of the 33rd Brigade, Royal Field Artillery marches to Station No.6 at Le Havre and entrains for Merville at 10 p.m.. On the front line the 1st Seaforths endure another day of shelling, however around midnight they vacate the trenches and retire about 100 yards, whilst every available gun bombards Neuve Chapelle right up to the battalion’s fire trenches. Forty-five minutes later Pte. Henry Gray Wishart and the rest of his unit re-occupy their former position without opposition.
At Wardrecques Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart is exercised in the attack. First opinions of the 9th HLI’s effort are poor, however after an explanation as to where they were going wrong, the exercise was repeated and deemed very satisfactory. GNP. Joseph Wishart remains at Bac St. Maur with the 6th DAC.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
