At the Manse in Lerwick, Shetland a 26 year old fisherman named Christopher Wishart marries the daughter of a rural deliverer named Jessie Dolly Maggie Anderson. Christopher’s father James is also a fisherman and at the time of the wedding he was living at North Stow Eshaness in Northmavine. Witnesses at the wedding were Henry Anderson and Adeline Wishart.


At Neuve Chapelle heavy shelling along the Seaforth Highlanders line all day causes several trenches to be evacuated. By 9 p.m. Pte. Henry Gray Wishart‘s first taste of life on the front line came to a close when the 2nd Royal Scots relieved his unit and he marched east to La Couture and billeted there around 2 a.m. the following morning. Battalion casualties up until that point were 45 killed, 191 wounded and 1 missing.
