Harry Leslie Smith grew up in poverty before serving in the RAF in the 2nd World War.

We were lucky enough to speak with Harry before he died at the end of 2018.

He was a one-of-a-kind writer and anti-poverty advocate.

The only advice I can give to young people, having a look at the world as I see it today, is they’ve got to realise that they are never going to get anything given by governments, they are going to have to work for it.

And to start off with, they are going to have to get out there when there’s an election, whatever it is for – whether it’s for the government or not – and vote.
