3598 Pte. Robert Wishart enlists in Liverpool with the 10th (Scottish) Battalion, The King’s (Liverpool Regiment.)


8394 Pte. John Waddie Wishart moves off with the South Wales Borderers at 5:30 a.m. The Brigade act as an advanced guard to the Division. Marching in a north-easterly direction, the battalion pass through Fere-en-Tardenois, Loupeigne, Mont Notre Dame and arrive in Bazoches. The 2nd Division are seen driving back the German forces on the left of the Borderers position and it is considered too late in the day to provide effective assistance so they go into billets at Vauxcére. It has been a wet day and John would have been grateful of a roof over his head for the night.

Joseph Wishart of the 6th Divisional Ammunition Column enters the harbour in St. Nazaire during late morning and disembarks that afternoon.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
