John Joseph Wishart of Redbank, Queensland marries Mary Josephine Murphy of Kirchheim at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Ipswich, near Brisbane. John was the third son of James Wishart from Fife and Mary O’Brien.


The South Wales Borderers receive reinforcements in the small hours of the morning, and with maps of north-west France and southern Belgium being delivered, the possibility that the battalion will soon be on the move again is a very real prospect.  Captain Paterson optimistically writes of the rumoured relocation, and also comments that: ‘we are sick of this village and valley and neighbourhood.’ It seems likely that Pte. John Waddie Wishart felt that way too.  Meanwhile in Crépy Gnr. Joseph Wishart remains in camp.


At 07:15 a.m. Pte. Thomas Wishart marches from St. Croix to Beernem with the Royal Scots Fusiliers. Total distance covered during the day is 14 miles.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
