In the trenches at Rue de Bois ten men of the 1st Highland Light Infantry got into German trenches resulting in one man wounded and four missing. It is not known whether 12056 L/Cpl Robert Alexander Wishart was among the ten. The battalion are relieved in the front line by the 4th Seaforth Highlanders at 5 p.m. and withdraw to the Brigade local reserve at Richebourg-St. Vaast, where they billeted. Meanwhile the 9th Battalion, HLI (including  2413 Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart) spend the day training at Essars, which largely consists of steady drill and marching. The men are described by the battalion war diary as being in good spirits.

7397 Pte. George Wishart of the 1st Black Watch probably took part in divine service in Bethune. At 6 p.m. the battalion are put in a state of readiness to move at two hours notice for the next twenty-four hours.

In Aumerval 677 Pte. Henry Gray Wishart and the 1st Seaforths also engage in a church parade.
