Presumably 'w' is wound but would like to know the first bit (he was hit in the finger and required amputation)?.

Cannot quite make out all of this, ''attributable...hand??'' (the place name is Blyth in case that is confusing).

Great word, Ray ... next time I'm struggling to figure something out, I shall say I'm trying to 'interpenetrate' it ...

Great piece of interpenetration, Mr Drill.  And a valuable lesson learned for the future  ...  if I'd looked more closely at the printed text, I'd have realised that 'attributable' was a free-standing word and so the word following it must belong to the line above.

Is that is "mid[dle] finger amputated"? I have been looking at it for some time and finally the penny dropped. Hint in first post too!

Yes, it's 'mid finger amputated' - but the 'f' looks more like a slash!
