27 April 1918

Joining the Royal Army Ordnance Corps In Glasgow is a 41-year-old local cashier named William Jeffs Wishart. Due to the extension of the 1916 Military Service Bill, which in April 1918 was changed to cover married men from 41-50, it seems likely William was conscripted into the ranks. He served out what remained of the war on British soil with the 18th Section, RAOC and returned to Glasgow, where he worked as a stockbroker’s accountant until his death in 1945. William was married with one child and part of tree WIS0106.

India

Arriving in India to join the Ambala Brigade is Lt. David George Wishart of the Royal Army Veterinary Corps. Originally from Kilmarnock, David had only received his commission earlier in the year and would serve out the remainder of the war stationed in various places around the country. He is part of tree WIS0086.
