Would the wget option --no-cache do the job?

Man page says:
            Disable server-side cache.  In this case, Wget will send the remote
            server an appropriate directive (Pragma: no-cache) to get the file
            from the remote service, rather than returning the cached version.
            This is especially useful for retrieving and flushing out-of-date
            documents on proxy servers.
