Gerald Smith flew for the Fleet Air Arm during the war and built his own car, the Kent-Smith, in partnership with JB Kent, which he used through most of 1952 before switching to Arnott and returning to his own car for 1953. In July 1954, Arnott returned to Montlhéry to attack the 750cc records using a Norton 600cc in their streamlined car. Sadly, a conrod break caused Gerald to crash, the car was wrecked and Gerald sustained serious leg injuries, ending his career. Gerald founded his own engineering company in Harlow which still continues making aviation parts.
