Lindsey Smith

Service Ambassador

Lindsey joined the Royal Australian Navy in 1984 as Recruit MT, graduating from training as Seaman MTH in 1985. During his career he has served on HMA Ships Jervis Bay, Yarra, Stalwart, Parramatta, Kanimbla, Tobruk, Manoora & STS Young Endeavour., furthermore becoming Chief Petty Officer.  

Lindsey considers Young Endeavour to be one of the highlights of his military career, and during this time he has witnessed thousands of fantastic young Australians undertake voyages on board and show him that the future of our country is in safe hands. During his time on the Young Endeavour he circumnavigated the world in 2015 

Lindsey is still a current serving member of the Navy with HMAS Kuttabul. He is currently in a strong welfare role, working out of the Randwick Barracks and looking after Navy students studying in TAFE’s throughout NSW, providing support and guidance where possible.  

Lindsey joined Soldier On through the Pollie Pedal event and has since been a major supporter at cycling events, fundraising, volunteering, contributing to local Sydney Serving On projects and mentoring other Soldier On participants.  

Through being a Soldier On Ambassador, Lindsey hopes to support others as they overcome the fear of transition and what it means to no longer be a part of the ADF.
