Private Ernest ‘Smokey’ Smith is a Warrior SMG team. He is rated as Fearless Veteran. Private Ernest ‘Smokey’ Smith may join a Canadian Commonwealth Rifle Company on page 46 of Road To Rome for +25 points.

Private Smith’s anti-tank squad of three men (himself, Private James Tennant and Private K.W. Ballard) were able to repulse a German counterattack during heavy fighting near the Savio River in October 1944.
With Private Ballard providing cover, Smith and Tennant advance until Tennant was wounded. A now enraged Smith charged the enemy with little regard for his personal safety and was able to route the enemy advance.
