Pte. John Waddie Wishart leaves Lime at 11 p.m. and marches through the night to the railway at Fère-en-Tardenois. The road is described as ‘difficult’ and made all the more precarious in the pitch black conditions.

Gnr. Joseph Wishart remains in camp at Merris. In La Valentine near Marseilles Pte. Henry Gray Wishart also spends the day in camp, which after several days of heavy rain, has turned into a quagmire. Orders are later received that the 1st Seaforths are to move by rail the next day.


Pte. Thomas Wishart of the 2nd Royal Scots Fusiliers advances towards the enemy via Potize – Hooge and Gheluvelt. In the evening the battalion bivouac at Château Poezelhoek.
