I was wondering if anyone had anymore info on this case? Anyone have photos of the men involved, know where they are buried, newspaper articles etc etc ? Private Harold Smith was serving in Headquarters Company , First Tank Destroyer Group at Chiseldon Camp , Wiltshire [just south of Swindon]. New Years Day 1943 he recieved his pay and went AWOL. He went off to London & met up with Private Harry English of the 984th Tank Destroyer Battalion. After a week Smith's money ran out so he returned to his unit at Chiseldon to find his unit had moved on and in it's place was 116th Infantry Regiment. He hung around the camp not knowing what to do so returned to his old billet where he found a .45 pistol lying on a bed. He checked the magizine was full and left . He was stopped by Pvt Harry Jenkins of 116th Inf Regt , Smith thought the guard was going for his own weapon so Smith shot him from a range of 4 feet. Jenkins span around and Smith fired twice more into Jenkins back. The shooting alerted other soldiers who rushed to the scene , Smith fired on them and ran off. He caught the local bus to Marlborough where he got on a train to London where he was arrested the next day. Pvt Jenkins was taken to the Victoria Hospital [where I was born, years later] in Swindon where he died. He had two serious stomach wounds and a less serious leg wound. Smith was tried by US Court Martial in Bristol on 12th March 1943 and sentenced to death. He was hung in Shepton Mallet Military Prison on June 25th , 1943. He is listed here. Capital punishment by the United States military - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This says he was from West Georgia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepton_Mallet_(HM_Prison)#American_military_executions As I say, if anyone can add to the story, I'd like to know where they were buried & has anyone any photos of them . Also on a lighter note was Harry a common name as all 3 GIs mentioned in this story were called Harry.
