A Smith, 4th Leicestershire Regiment

Chailey Parish Magazine notes in February 1918 that Private A Smith is serving with the 4th Leicestershire Regiment.  In May 1918 it notes that he is serving with the 2nd battalion and this information is then repeated up to and including the final published roll in July 1919. 

Chailey Parish Magazine notes eight men with the surname Smith and it is possible that A Smith is related to some or all of the other seven men.  At this point in time however, it has not been possible to positively identify him.  The only obvious possibility on the 1901 census is Archibald Smith who was five years old and living at Station Cottage Number One, Chailey village when the census was taken.
