Only Goodnight Beloved

 

Henry Charles Smith (Charles Henry on the memorial) – was born in Hook but was a Worting

resident. He was a Lance bombardier in the Royal Garrison artillery, 188th Heavy battery (87668). He

enlisted in Winchester on the 11th November 1915 aged 31 and died on the 11th of August 1919 and

is buried at the Netley Military a Cemetery, attached to the large military hospital there. His wife was

Eleanor Martha Smith who lived at Lucania Cottages, Worting, although by the time he died she had

moved to Portsmouth. His unit served in the middle east and it is not clear how he came to die.

However Netley military hospital was on the Solent and designed to take wounded from overseas

directly from hospital ships and it seems likely that whether wounded or ill he came back to England

to the Solent side hospital where he died. He is one of 636 First World War soldiers buried at Netley.
