    He was found lying dead on the airfield at Amriyah by 2nd/Lt J. Francis of 2 Hampshires at 07:05 Hours. He was taken by lorry to SSQ. An investigation was held and 125025 AC2 H.R Hamilton stated he was on flare path duty and called to Smith to join him and 1304754 AC2 Henderson on the Chance Light. Smith replied in the affirmative but the night was so dark it was not known if Smith had boarded the light which set off at 3 MPH. Nothing was heard over the noise of the tractor and trailer. An autopsy held at 17:00 Hours on 4 June found Smith had died of fractured ribs and a bilateral pneumothorax. The pathologist would express no opinion of the actual mechanism of death other than it appeared to be accidental.
