Smith is shown on the 1939 Register, which can be viewed by clicking on here, (if you have a subscription with ‘find my past’). Smith was born in 1910, and before the war worked as a heavy goods driver. Given that he features on the 1939 Register then it can be assumed that he joined up at the start of hostilities. I have undertaken no further research into this man.
