At St. Mary Magdalene Church in Dundee a lorry driver named John Wishart marries a local jute spinner named Agnes Cameron Clark. Both bride and groom are residents of Dundee; John at 17 Blackness Road and Agnes living at 93 Overgate. John’s father is a cattle drover (also named John) and his mother is Isabella Lennox. Agnes’s late father, a jute preparer, was also named John and Ann Hutton, her mother, is still living.


The whole battalion of the 1st Seaforth Highlanders (including Pte. Henry Gray Wishart) march to billets in Le Touret, which is to the south west of Neuve Chapelle.


The 9th Highland Light Infantry spend the greater part of the day in the line at Kemmel with nothing unusual reported in the battalion war diary. Enemy snipers keep check on the Highlanders position and the ground to the rear of the firing line was shelled. At 8 p.m. the battalion (including Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart) is relieved by the Liverpool Scottish who number amongst their ranks, brothers William Andrew and Robert Wishart. By 2:30 a.m. the Seaforths have marched back into France and arrived at billets near Bailleul. In turn the Wishart brothers spend their first night in the trenches.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
