    My great uncle Smith, who was indeed a blacksmith, was killed at the Battle of Mons in 1914.

    Plenty of blacksmiths and farriers served on the front lines – cavalry soldiers could hardly nip back to base in the middle of a battle because their horse lost a shoe, could you?

      I think what they mean is the original Saxon origin of the name. A Schmitt in the Dark Ages was probably the village blacksmith and was exempt from a Kings levy to join the army in war. Those Schmitts survived and passed the name down over the centuries. Becoming Smith in English etc.

      It goes back a bit further than the 20th century.

    If you turn your underwear inside out and put them back on again, then the entire universe except for you is wearing your underwear.

    And the Smith one… in Ireland, smiths were killed during rebellions because they were assumed to be making the pikes.
