Re-writing history - again

A Google websearch today, using the phrase "Ted Smout died", produced five significant media reports of his death. They were: The Australian Defence Report,, Media Release from Dana Vale - Minister for Veterans Affairs, The Sydney Morning Herald, and Army newspaper.

Whilst reporting on the passing of Ted Smout, WWI veteran, not one of these sources bothered to mention the very relevant fact that Ted was opposed to our participation in the Iraq and Afghaninstan wars, and that he was a pacifist.

Hope this sets the record straight.
