Smithy Makes Good (Kingsford Smith Part III) (ASP V1N3)

When a man is young he is frequently thoughtless and callow. He may have a dream but his personal development is incomplete. Attempts to get somewhere are frequently frustrated, leading perhaps to depression, drink of extravagant behaviour. So it was with Charles Kingsford Smith. We pick up the thread of his early life as he returns to Australia, having failed to make a dent on America through his Hollywood stunt flying or other mundane aviation activities.
