47766 Gnr. David Wishart, a steel smelter from Dumbarton, enlists in Glasgow Cross and joins the Royal Garrison Artillery. He is sent to Great Yarmouth for training, and has been released for military service by his employer, the Clyde Bridge Steel Company of Cambuslang.


Gnr. Joseph Wishart remains at Petit Mortier with the soon-to-be-disbanded 2nd Section, 6th Divisional Ammunition Column. Meanwhile at Neuve Chapelle Pte. Henry Gray Wishart endures another day of shelling and sniping. When the opportunity arises the 1st Seaforths attempt to make improvements to the fire and support trenches.

At 7 a.m. the SS Maidan steams into the bay at Le Havre. On board are men of the 10th Battalion (King’s) Liverpool Regiment (the Liverpool Scottish) including brothers Robert and William Andrew Wishart. The ship is kept in the bay until 10 p.m. A member of the 1st/16th London Regiment who was also on the ship described the men of the Liverpool Scottish as “a likely lot of Lancashire lads got up in kilts.“[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
