http://www.ww2talk.com/forum/north-africa-med/24494-j-b-smethurst-rtr.html As those who read thread above will know my uncle AB Smethurst MC is still with us aged 95 (on 22nd August). Not in touch with veterans. Not been in great health but most definitely in great spirits. Spoke to him and he said that his crew 46 RTR were scruffy by comparison to my father and 1 RTR. Delighted that forum members found his MC citation for me. Seemed genuinely amazed anyone could be interested in his war time service.
