My Grandfather - the late Anzac (67229).
Submitted by: Neil Ramsay Smithson

My grandfather Private Leslie Alfred Smithson on my father's (Norman Leslie Smithson) side - the photo was taken at the George Street Studios, Sydney in July 1918 at enlistment - Grandad Smithson (aged 21) was one of the last to travel overseas, embarking on 14 Oct 1918 from Sydney aboard the SS Wyreema - he was a Beltmaker by trade, and lived in Hudson Street, Hurstville.
He was enroute to South Africa, when the reinforcements were told of the Armistice in France.
