PHOTOS OF KINGSMAN SMITH

Kingsman Smith went straight to Northern Ireland after his training at York (not Catterick) and was there when 'Checkpoint Charlie' was blown up. He was stationed at a camp in Ballykelly and his mother thinks that these facts might help you with dates which she finds difficult to remember.      More Info >>>

SEEKING PHOTOS OF KGN NEIL SMITH AT STRENSALL 1988

 I am taking advantage of my good neighbour's P.C. to find the source of any photographs extant of my son, Kingsman Smith. (as above). I had some which were taken at a passing out ceremony in 1988, the same year that he started his training. He was then in Salamanca Section at York Training Camp but the photos were lost when I moved house. As my son is now deceased, it would mean a lot to me to get copies of these photos if you know where they can be obtained.

Please E-Mail any information you have to this E-Mail address
fredagregory1@gmail.com  and Mrs.Gregory will pass it on  to me.


Thank you in  anticipation, Mrs. Maureen Smith
