Wounded, he returned home to his aunt, Mrs M Crew, High Street, Blackwood. Private S Fisher (3/13341) later died of pneumonia, presumably related to his wounds, 25 July 1917, aged 44.  He had been transferred previously to the Class W Reserve - soldiers who were more valuable in civil rather than military employmnet.  He is buried in Penmaen Chapelyard with a CWG headstone.
