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.

The Northern Ireland Veterans' Association Service of Remembrance 2014 will be held at 11.30am on Saturday 20th September 2014 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.

The service will commemorate and remember all those who lost their lives in service of the Crown as a result of the conflict in Northern Ireland.

The service will be followed by a parade down to the Ulster Ash Grove for the laying of wreaths. Following the laying of the wreaths, there will be a 15 minute pause before the parade forms up for the return march to the visitor centre during which the guest of honour will take the salute.

The service is open to all and all Associations are welcome to parade their standards. It would be appreciated if Associations arranging for groups of their members to attend could notify us of numbers and confirm if their standard will be parading.

We look forward to welcoming you to our annual memorial service.

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 and Mrs.Gregory will pass it on to me.
Thank you in  anticipation,

Mrs. Maureen Smith
