During the day ‘B’ and ‘C’ Companies of the 1st Seaforth Highlanders march from billets in Lacouture to form the battalion local reserve in Rue-des-Berceaux. Meanwhile ‘A’ and ‘D’ Companies march to Rue-du-Bois where they relieve the Manchester Regiment who were holding the line from the cross roads to the orchard. Relief is completed by 9pm. Without knowing exactly which company 677 Pte. Henry Gray Wishart belonged to it is hard to say in which position he found himself on this day.

Privates 27972 George R Wishart (G Coy) and 27414 James Wishart (C Coy) of the 15th Battalion, C.E.F. parade in skeleton marching order at 8am and march off towards Armentières half an hour later. The weather during the march is recorded as being fine with occasional showers.

The 4th Gordon Highlanders (including 1972 Pte. Alexander Wishart and 419 CSM John Wishart) arrive in Bailleul at 10am and billet in the Grapparies.


A very cold, quiet day along the trenches in Zillebeke for 6391 Pte. John Wishart of the Royal Scots Greys. At 9pm the squadrons are relieved by the 5th Dragoon Guards and march to Ypres where they are given coffee and a change of socks.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
