lifesaving at Wicklow *
* At about 3pm on 19 August 1930 John F Goldsmith (51), a retired Engineer Commander, went into the sea at Ballinacarrig, Co. Wicklow, in an attempt to assist his son who apparently in danger. Having swam out some 50 to 60 yards fully clothed, he got into difficulties. Miss Amy K Goldsmith then swam out to assist him and kept him up until Oliver Goldsmith (19) swam out to them and took his uncle to shore. Unfortunately, Commander Goldsmith did not recover. Oliver Goldsmith then went back into the sea and assisted his aunt back to shore. The rescue was brought to the attention of the RHS by Lt Colonel F E Whitton, from West Byfleet, and the Society approved the award of its bronze medal to Oliver Goldsmith and a testimonial on Vellum to Amy Goldsmith at its committee meeting on 13 January 1931. The Society despatched the awards by post to Lt.Col. Whitton on 2 February 1931 for him to organise their presentation. RHS case no. 50653.

His son writes: "From 1944, he was leading West African troops, whose courage, initiative and cheerfulness he greatly admired, all through the extremely difficult Arakan campaign. After the Japanese surrender, the Indian troops were repatriated first, since Indian independence was in the wings, so the Africans had to wait some time for their troopships to arrive. My father chose to stay with his men and keep them occupied and entertained with sporting events, and great "wassas", or feasts until they could return home. He then accompanied them back to Nigeria and took the troop train with them, from Lagos up to Kano, delivering them along the way with great celebrations at each stop. He more or less emptied the regimental purse to do this and got some "flak" from the top brass later but he always maintained that it was money well spent and that it was the very least that was owed to such splendid soldiers, many of whom never returned."

When the British cautiously moved towards the bridge they were surprised by a German motorcycle and sidecar that tried to escape northwards across the bridge in a desperate attempt. While passing, the passenger in the sidecar gave off a salvo with his automatic weapon, killing Lt. Greenall.]

* On 20 February [1943] part of ‘A’ Squadron were returning to take up their position at first light in the area 3247 (Tunisia, Sheet 4) when the Squadron Leader’s tank was knocked out and Major W.H. Ketchell wounded. Capt. Griffith, who had been delayed on the way owing to a broken down vehicle, arrived shortly afterwards and very coolly and competently organised the defense of this vital area. He remained in command of this area until 5th March and during this period was responsible for holding the position by day and by night. On the morning of 1 March six enemy tanks were subjected to artillery fire; one was immobilised and all abandoned by their crews. Captain Griffith went out on foot and entered one of these tanks. He brought back a German wallet containing valuable material for identification and from the information which he supplied an operation for the complete destruction of the tanks was organised and successfully carried out. During these six days Captain Griffith displayed marked powers of leadership and initiative. The position was frequently under fire and Capt. Griffith went out many times on foot to locate the enemy guns and to secure valuable information of enemy tank and infantry movements. I consider that Captain Griffith played a very valuable part in the stopping of the tank thrust on Beja. He comes from Blackrock, Co. Dublin.
Recommended by Lt.Col. David Dawnay, Commanding Officer North Irish Horse, endorsed by Lt.Col. P. Scott, Acting Commander 128th Infantry Brigade, Maj.Gen. H.A.

** 0600 hours 23 May 1944 – 1000 hrs 24 May 1944. Adolf Hitler Line, Italy. In the action against the Hitler Line
Major Griffith’s squadron supported the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, a battalion of the 2 Canadian Infantry Brigade. 600 yards from the Start Line his squadron was held up by the obstacles and an extensive enemy minefield. Visibility was 10 yards and the squadron came under very heavy enemy shelling and mortaring which continued incessantly for 28 hours. Touch was lost with the infantry and a battle commenced with the powerful anti-tank defences. Major Griffith controlled this battle on foot despite the heavy enemy fire and besides accounting for several snipers himself, his tank destroyed two Mark V tanks (Panthers), two 75 m.m. anti-tank guns, one 88 m.m. anti-tank gun and inflicted severe casualties on the enemy infantry. Four of his Churchill tanks were destroyed in this action. As it was found impossible to by-pass the minefield and all attempts at gapping were unsuccessful, Major Griffith decided to consolidate his gains. To do this, he left the safety of his tank and for many hours on foot and under intense fire, directed the forming of a strong point. He helped considerably in the re-organization of the infantry and directed the clearance of casualties. He held this position against constant enemy actions throughout one day and one night and would only leave the area when ordered to do so during the following morning when the battle had been won. His clear appreciation of the situation, his complete disregard for his personal safety, his coolness and daring were an inspiration to all the troops in the area and there is no doubt that his action in pinning down powerful elements of the enemy defenses helped considerably in the forcing of the Hitler Line.

Gibson, Commander 2nd Canadian Infantry Brigade, Lt.Gen. E.L.M. Burns, General Officer Commanding 1st Canadian Corps, Lt.Gen. O.W.H.

* Major Guest joined the Gordon Highlanders early in the war, was commissioned and served with 1st Army in North Africa and Italy, then with SOE Forces in the Middle and Far East. When the Territorial Army was reformed after the war he joined the 4th Bn KOYLI (TA). He was serving as a Company Commander in 1954 when he was asked by the West Riding ACF County Commandant (his old TA Commanding Officer) to become his Sports Officer. At that time interest in sport in the West Riding was rather desultory. Although a busy man in his civilian occupation, and with not much knowledge of any sport other than Rugger (he had played full back for Yorkshire) Major Guest quickly settled down to organising sport in the County. The strength of the County is about 1800 Cadets, the biggest in the UK with 81 Detachments, equivalent to about 4 normal sized Counties. The sports in which the County participates are Athletics, Cross Country, Swimming, Boxing, Pentathlon and Soccer. Working almost every weekend in the year (his only free time) he is either at home drawing up programmes,  working out transport arrangements, checking ages, and in fact planning all the background organisation of each event, or he is away in all weathers with the County teams at County, Command and National events. These events in themselves take up 15 weekends in the year. He has mastered the intricacies of the regulations for all Sports and, in addition to organising the County events, as West Riding is central in Northern Command he has had a very considerable hand in organising and running Command events, and three National events which require much planning and organisation. He has never missed a fortnight’s Annual Camp, where, in addition to his Sporting activities, he gives considerable and valuable assistance on the military training side. Now, aged about 65, he is as tireless in his work for ACF Sport as he was 16 years ago. It may seem that the job of Sports Officer is a part-time one. In a County of this size to achieve the results he has it is a full-time task. Major Guest has certainly given loyal and efficient service beyond the usual call of ACF duty.
