38 SMITH, William J.


W J Smith


38 William J. Smith

William was 21 years old, a harness maker from Lanarck Scotland when he enlisted.
While on active service he was absent without leave from the 26th August 1915 up to the 11th Sept 1915, a total of 15 days and 16hrs, during which time he had proceeded overseas without authority.
Mystery surrounds his absence as his war record makes no mention of his whereabouts at the time of him going AWL.

His story is brief but will be completed and published soon when all research is exhausted.
