Pte. Henry Gray Wishart of the Seaforth Highlanders remains in billets as does Pte. George Wishart of the 1st Black Watch at Borre.
Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart spends his first full day in the front line trenches southwest of Ypres at Kemmel. The day passes quietly, with the war diary commenting that the misty conditions are evidently unsuitable for aerial observation or artillery fire.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
