TitlePapers relating to Smith's work for the Army Veterinary Service post 1905
Extent1 box
DescriptionThese papers cover a broad time period and range of subjects, but they all relate to Smith's continued work for the Army Veterinary Service after the Second Anglo-Boer War. This work is reflected in papers regarding data collection about the loss of horses in the Armed Services, and also formal appearances by Smith as a Major-General, and a few communications from the Canadian Army Veterinary Corps. Some of the material dates from before Smith was promoted to Director General, and so it is assumed that Smith grouped it with this later work as it was used by him at the time, or he reviewed all this work together at a later stage.

Smith was appointed Colonel and Prinicpal Veterinary Officer of Eastern Command in 1905, and then Director General of the Army Veterinary Service in 1907. He retired in 1910 as Major General, but returned to the Service as Assistant Director General after the outbreak of the First World War [World War, 1914-1918] in 1914. He was briefly made redundant in 1916, but reappointed again in 1917. He recieved a Knighthood in 1918, and finally retired in 1919. He was located in London and Salisbury, Wiltshire throughout this time.
