About 9:50 in the morning at 17 Springfield Road in the Bridgeton area of Glasgow, a boy named Peter is born to a leather dresser named Hugh Wishart and his wife Euphemia Kirk.


12056 L/Cpl Robert Alexander Wishart of the 1st Battalion, Highland Light Infantry leaves Vieille Chapelle at 10:30 a.m. and marches to Rue de L’Epinette where the battalion form part of the brigade reserve.  Robert, now in ‘D’ Coy, remains in the reserve whilst two other companies form part of a force detailed for counter-attack.

A rainy day greets men of the 1st Seaforth Highlands at Riez-du-Vinage. Leave has been re-opened for all ranks, however it’s not known whether 677 Pte. Henry Gray Wishart is among the two men allotted for the first five day pass.

6391 Pte. John Wishart of the 2nd Dragoons (Royal Scots Greys) spends his day in Merville engaging in trench work and bomb throwing.

At Gorre men of the 9th Highland Light Infantry continue to work on breastworks during the night. Whilst two companies work the other two rest and rotate during the night meaning that 2413 Pte. Andrew Brock Wishart is likely not to have scored a decent night’s sleep for some days.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
