Signalman Kenneth Smith GC (7 December 1920 – 10 January 1945) of the Royal Corps of Signals, was posthumously awarded the George Cross for the bravery he showed on the night of 10 January 1945 on the island of Ist in the Adriatic when attached to the Long Range Desert Group.

Smith was born in Market Rasen, Lincolnshire on 7 December 1920, the eldest son of Bertie and Alice Jane Smith of Louth. He joined the Royal Signals, British Army on 23 January 1939 and served in the Second World War.

At the time of his death he was attached to the signals section of a Long Range Desert Group (a forerunner of the SAS) patrol based in the Adriatic islands. Sabotage was rife on the islands, and in dealing with a time-bomb placed on Ist to disrupt the activities of his patrol, which also threatened a number of civilians, Smith was killed.
