In Dunfermline, Fife, a 24-year-old local butcher named Thomas Wishart visits the recruiting office with the view to joining the artillery. He passes the medical and is eventually mobilised for service in late April, when he is posted to No.6 Coy of the Forth Royal Garrison Artillery. Thomas is part of Wishart Tree 098 and died in 1942.


The same day in Prahran, Victoria a hairdresser from Ballarat named Archibald Wishart enlists in the Australian army and joins the 29th Battery, 8th Field Artillery Brigade.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
