I assume this is where I need to list all users and set the permissions
as specified. Also, I do not find an entry for "directory mask".
# The following two entries demonstrate how to share a directory so that two
# users can place files there that will be owned by the specific users.
# setup, the directory should be writable by both users and should have the
# sticky bit set on it to prevent abuse. Obviously this could be extended to
# as many users as required.
; comment = Mary's and Fred's stuff
; path = /usr/somewhere/shared
; valid users = mary fred
; public = no
; writable = yes
; printable = no
; create mask = 0765

What have I missed and how do I fix it?
P.S. My admin expertise is just moderate since my Linux server just
runs and runs without much administration needed.
You did not provide a copy of your smb.conf
you may want to check
directory mask = 0775
create mask = 0664
in the global section or in the particular [homes] section as you see
another way is to use the sticky bit under unix file permissions
chmod g+s /home/smith
