The trenches at Neuve Chapelle where the 1st Highland Light Infantry are heavily shelled all day. In all likelihood 12056 L/Cpl Robert Alexander Wishart and his comrades spent the night working on front and second line trenches whilst sapper and miners worked on a new pioneer trench that rounded off the line and prevented a threatened German movement in that area. Battalion patrols continued to be active. Also during the night the 1st Royal Highlanders (Black Watch) including privates 3/4067 Robert Wishart, 7397 George Wishart and 2338 Andrew Wishart, relieve the 1st Coldstreams in the trenches at Rue-du-Bois.

9650 Pte. Alexander Wishart of the 1st Scots Guards is relieved in the trenches by the Cameron Highlanders and returns to billets in the Rue de L’Epinette sector.
