Smith was assigned to a demolition team that consisted of Lieutenant Robert Jacobs, Private Lucas Riggs, and Private Desmond "Des" Wilmot. The team was part of a regiment under the command of Major Henry Hamms, who was often disrespectful to the Australian soldiers and often took the credit for their accomplishments.
During this time, the team is assigned to ambush an incoming Nazi convoy due to the lack of munitions the Australians and British had. They had prepared explosives near the ridge with Riggs going to set it off, until Hamms decided he should do it. This in cause makes him mess up and blame it on Smith and the others.
