Has anyone had experience of tracing an incident of wounding from the casualty lists in the local papers during WW 1 ?

My grandad was wounded and brief details appeared in the casualty lists in the Wigan Observer dated 14th July 1917.

Has anyone any knowledge of roughly when the wounding would have happened ? Would it be six or seven weeks earlier, or longer ?

Have tried to get info but there does not seem to be any out there. Any help would be appreciated.
