Signalman Kenneth Smith, Royal Corps of Signals, won a posthumous George Cross, on the Adriatic Isalnd of Ist, at a time when acts of sabotage were of daily occurence. On the 10th January 1945 Signalman Smith found a time-bomb in a house where members of his detachment were billeted with civilians and children. Realising from its ticking that it might explode at any moment, his one thought was to remove it as far as possible. He did so, and he was the only casualty as it blew him to pieces. The King has been gracioulsy pleased to approve the posthumous award of the George Cross, in recognition of most conspicuous gallantry in carrying out hazardous work in a very brave manner.
