WOUNDED Known At: 28th October 1915

"Hamo was sent out with his unit to put up some barbed wire in front of a trench after an advance, and was hit in the leg by a sniper.
He fell and crawled back to the parapet of the trench, from which he fell into the trench itself.
They put on his first dressing, and he was shifted back, first to the Field Ambulance, and then to a casualty clearing station.

Hamo said that he did not want to expose others to the fire of snipers.
Hamo seemed to make light of his wounds, and was quite cheery."
