    Next of kin details compiled from information in the Casualty lists published in the newspapers.

    Corporal A. D. Smith, MM; born Wyndham, 21 Jul 1911; labourer; killed in action 15 Jul 1942. (Source: Ross, A. 23 Battalion. p.128.)

    'During the time the patrol was under fire, Corporal A. D. Smith worked his way forward, rushed a machine-gun post, killed the crew with a grenade and then swung their machine gun into action against other MG posts nearby. The patrol saw several 75-millimetre and other guns but it was not strong enough to bring them away, nor was it equipped to destroy them. In addition to recapturing the forty-three members of an Indian first-aid unit, which had been captured late that afternoon through taking the wrong road, Lynch's patrol took some prisoners, which brought the total for the day to 3 officers and 70 other ranks. Corporal A. D. Smith, MM; born Wyndham, 21 Jul 1911; labourer; killed in action 15 Jul 1942.' (Source: Ross, A. 23 Battalion. pp. 128.) AWMM

  • Your passing reverberates down generations the memory of a man who gave all to a nation Your name handed down the family lines healing the hole of your absence in time Each year your homeland bows in pausing to honour the sons, brave and fallen Lest you we forget, beloved and missed, your sisters have wept Long since gone your shadow remains for giving your youth, strength and dreams Although the passage of time takes hold, you're etched in our hearts, some now old.
