[Samba] Delete permission question

I have been trying to figure this out but have decided to give in and
ask the list.
I am setting up a samba share that is writeable by numerous users. This
is no problem - put them in the necessary group and chmod g+w that
directory. The problem is that only the user who owns the parent
directory is able to delete files from it. I know that dir permissions
govern who can and can't delete files on Unix, but I'd like anyone to be
able to delete any file within that directory structure.
I am not using any ACLs, nor am I using any special entries in the
service definition of my smb.conf.
path = /var/www/infoshare
writable = yes
force group = folder-infoshare-modify
ls -l /var/www/
drwxrwx---+ 6 root folder-infoshare-modify 4096 infoshare
In this case, my users belong to the correct group
(folder-infoshare-modify) so they can write to the share without
problem. However, unless their username is root, none of these users
will be able to delete any file they save. Is there a way to do this?
I hope I have made this clear enough.
If anyone can assist, I'd appreciate it.
