In Glasgow nineteen year old Thomas Wishart enlists and joins the 6th Battalion, Highland Light Infantry as 3413 Pte. T Wishart.


At midday the 9th Battalion, Highland Light Infantry march from Wardrecques to Hazebrouck. The march had been delayed from the morning whilst the horses had frost cogs fitted to their shoes. Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart arrives with his unit in the town after dark and billets there.

Pte. Henry Gray Wishart awakes for the first time in a number of days and does not feel the biting chill of a hard frost on his face. He is billeted with the 1st Seaforth Highlanders just north of Festubert in L’Epinette, and may have been part of the two companies who were ordered to support a counter-attack by the Bareilly Brigade during the day.

Pte. George Wishart remains in Borre with the Black Watch.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
