45516 Pte. Christopher Wishart ( – )
Based on both his regiments association with Lanarkshire, Christopher may have been born in Lanark in 1898, and the son of William Wishart and his wife, Betsy Forbes. However, in the absence of any surviving service papers or other documentary evidence, his identity cannot be confirmed.
It seems likely this Christopher was conscripted into the army during 1917 and joined the 2nd Battalion Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) after which, he was transferred to the 12th (Service) Battalion, Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regiment) and allocated a new service number.
For his part in the war, he was awarded the Britsih War and Victory medals.
