17 October 1914

Murdo Graham is interred at Hazebrouck, which is listed as a casualty clearing station. It appears that he was injured in a previous engagement. I do not have access to his service record, meaning that the date of his wounding is not known to me. Murdo succumbed to his wounds on 17 October 1914.
On that date, his unit moved to occupy Armentieres on the Belgian / French border.
