2413 Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart enlists with the 9th Battalion, Highland Light Infantry in Glasgow.


8394 Pte. John Waddie Wishart and the 1st South Wales Borderers continue their march south to Cregy. The battalion war diary records that:

Nobody seems to know what we are supposed to be doing, everything is secret. There is no news of the enemy and the weather is exceedingly hot. There is a rumour that we shall go back to the Paris defences, however we go to Meaux and are sent off to billet at Cregy. It has been a long day and a weary one. Orders come at midnight to move at once and we think we are in for some fighting.

56591 Gnr. George Greig Wishart also finds himself at Meaux with the 56th Battery, Royal Field Artillery.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
