A former colleague’s legacy now lives on at 212 Field Hospital in Nottingham after a service was held to remember the late Captain Christopher Smith, who lost his battle with cancer in 2011.

The service, which was attended by Captain Smith’s widow Christine, took place on Tuesday 2 December 2014 and saw the Fitness room at B Detachment 212 Field Hospital, be renamed as ‘The Chris Smith Fitness Room.’

Captain Smith served in Northern Ireland, Bosnia, and Hong Kong, as well as holding the post PSAO of B Detachment 212 Field Hospital for six years between 2005 and 2011.

The service was followed by a plaque unveiling by the Commanding Officer of 212 Field Hospital, Colonel Owen Jones, and Officer Commanding B Detachment 212 Field Hospital, Major Stuart Shaw.

Past and present Officers and personnel from the unit also attended the service to commemorate the life of Captain Christopher Smith.
