Harry Smith was born to George and Jane Smith in 1885 at Orchard Cottage in the west end of the village.
Like his father, Harry became a joiner by trade.
He enlisted in Abergavenny, joining a Service battalion of the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry, (KSLI) before being posted to the Royal Warwicks later in the war.
Harry was killed in action around the 8th August 1918 during an operation to gain and hold ground east of the Lys Salient in Flanders. He was 33, and left a wife and small children.
