hi all.
This action resulted in the death of SGT .E. SMITH and CORP . POMFRET. ( POMPET. J. 11/ 910 2/4TH REGT IN THE MEDAL
ROLL BOOK) . SGT. E SMITH is not listed as K.I.A. neither is the corp in the medal roll book. SMITH"S MEDAL has been on ebay
twice , 1st listing 14/12/07 opening price 3,995 quid or buy it now 4,495 quid. it recieved 587 hits and no bids. Second listing
was 23/1/08 opening bid was 3,795 quid no buy it now option. Still wasnt sold but recieved 613 hits. Before i forget SMITH is
listed as a SGT-MAJOR in the medal roll book his regt number being 1641, this is the only E. SMITH with the rank of SGT on the
2/4th roll. Going through my records SGT . E SMITH"S medal appeared on ebay again on 10/3/08 , opening bid 3,595 quid or
buy it now 3,795 , it didnt sell but had 457 hits. And once again listed on 11/5/08 opening bid 3,395 no buy it now option.
Failed to sell had 394 hits. Best to my knowledge it hasnt been listed again.
cheers 90th.

Hi Admin

Yes he was K.I.A.

He was killed in action at Leneberg on the 8th September 1879. His regimental service number was 1641.

That's the only info I have on him.
