Welcome to the forum double.g. It's always nice to be able to put more detail to these 1940 casualties and also to know that they are not forgotten. The story of George's family brings home the tragedy of two major conflicts in less than thirty years which had so dramatic an effect on so many, especially the children who grew up without a father. Having progressed from a 14 year old bandsman to a Drum Major, he seems to have turned out alright Since the posts last year, CWGC have made more available on-line in terms of original paper records. The record for Kaster Churchyard shows six named East Surrey casualties for 21st May buried in a row...with an 'unknown' between 15 and 17. Bearing in mind that the War Diaries show seven East Surrey fatalities on 21st May and having read numerous accounts of local burials, it seems to me most unlikely that plot 16 could be anyone other than the seventh man - Drum Major George Smith and that sadly the local authorities were unable to make a positive identification, probably later in 1940 once removal from field graves was permitted. On this photo from CWGC, plot 16 would appear to be the second from left in the back row.
