I have been unable to locate any service records relating to this man, however, Smith’s Medal Index Card and medal roll entries can be viewed by clicking on here, on here and on here, (if you have access to Ancestry), although a paper copy of the MIC will be provided with this listing.
In regards to the Battery in which he served, at the outbreak of hostilities, the Battery sent its regular forces to Malta to replace troops that were required in France. While fresh recruits were being raised in the UK they spent most of their time training in and around Ipswich. In March 1916 the Battery deployed to France.
The Battery was ultimately posted to 42nd HAG (later 42nd Heavy Brigade) in December 1917 and remained with it (apart from short detachments) for the rest of the war. A full description of the Battery’s action and activities can be viewed by clicking on here.
