Unhappy tidings of Harry Hampton

Monday, July 23 – 1917
It is reported that Harry Hampton (R.A.M.C.), the old International and Aston Villa centre-forward, has met with a severe accident in France, and lies in a base hospital with a fractured left thigh. Let’s hope he’ll soon be happy again, and that he will recover as quickly as when one winter’s day, at Goodison Park, he was knocked out.
(Liverpool Echo, 23-07-1917)
