Walter William Smith
Seaforth Highlanders (Ross-shire Buffs, the Duke of Albany's), 7th (Service) Battalion
Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery
Enlisted at Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.
Died (of wounds received in action) at No. 10 Casualty Clearing Station, Lijssenthoek. The village was the location for a number of casualty clearing stations during the First World War, being situated on the main communication line between the Allied military bases in the rear & the Ypres battlefields. Close to the Front, but out of the extreme range of most German field artillery, it became a natural place to establish casualty clearing stations.
Born at Belford, Northumberland, the son of John B. & Mary E. Smith, of 65, West End, Tweedmouth, Northumberland.
