Dying in captivity at the Kriegs Laz Gef Lag POW camp in St. Clotilde from wounds received in battle on 28 April is 43760 L/Cpl. William Wishart of ‘B’ Coy, 16th Battalion Royal Scots. William was initially recorded as missing in action, however on a casualty list supplied by the Red Cross on 18 July, he was officially listed as having died on 2 May. It appears that William’s company, who had been cut off from the rest of the battalion, had been engaged in fierce hand-to-hand combat with the Germans in and around the village of Rouex when he was taken prisoner. He left behind a wife and two young sons, and is part of tree WIS0009.
