Thomas Hazel Whitmore was born in Dauphin, Manitoba, on 31 March 1899.
A physician, Whitmore was commissioned as a captain in the Canadian Army Medical Corps at Camp Hughes, Manitoba, on 6 June 1916.
On 8 August 1918, shortly after leaving his unit’s start position on the first day of the Battle of Amiens, Whitmore was badly wounded by an enemy shell near the French village of Gentelles. He received immediate medical attention and was evacuated, but he died of his wounds at No. 5 Casualty Clearing Station the same day.
