JOIN THE A.I.F. NOW: 1914.

William served in the military in 1915. Private William Smart Regimental No.4870 joined the Australian Imperial Force, 50th Battalion on November 1 1915 aged 20 years 7 months. Embarkation from Australia 9 March 1916. He suffered from Trench Feet resulting in a leg amputation 18 August 1918 at the Frinsham? Hill Military Hospital.

William was A.W.L. several times during the times he was in England, once when he was stationed at Salisbury Plains (a large area of plain in Wiltshire and noted for Stonehenge, a prehistoric sight, with huge stones set up in a circle). His Uncle Fred was then Postmaster at Melksham also in Wiltshire, Willie knowing this, decided to visit him, especially as a pal told him it wasn't far, but it was a long way and Will was reported and picked up by the Military Police. He told them his story and the M.P. took him to his Uncle Fred's under escort to confirm the story.

While in England Willie married Mary Ann West and twin boys were born there.
They were married by the rites of the Church of England at the Parish Church of West Ham. They returned to Australia onboard the Katoomba Aug 8, 1919.

The following history of the 50th Battalion has been sourced from the National Archives Australia, it is known that William was serving in France up until the time that he suffered his injuries.

"The 50th Battalion was raised in Egypt on 26 February 1916 as part of the doubling of the AIF. Approximately half of its recruits were veterans from the 10th Battalion, and the other half, fresh reinforcements from Australia. Reflecting the composition of the 10th, the 50th was predominantly composed of men from South Australia. The battalion became part of the 13th Brigade of the 4th Australian Division and was dubbed Hurcombeís Hungry Half Hundred, after its first CO, Lieutenant Colonel Frederick Hurcombe.

After arriving in France on 11 June 1916, the 50th fought in its first major battle at Mouquet Farm between 13 and 15 August and suffered heavily. It took part in another assault launched there on 3 September. The battalion saw out the rest of the year alternating between front-line duty, and training and labouring behind the line. This routine continued through the bleak winter of 1916-17.

Early in 1917, the battalion participated in the advance that followed the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line, and attacked at Noreuil on 2 April. For his actions at Noreuil Private Joergen Jensen was awarded the Victoria Cross. Later that year, the focus of AIF operations moved to the Ypres sector in Belgium. There the battalion was involved in the battle of Messines between 7 and 12 June and the battle of Polygon Wood on 26 September. Another winter of trench routine followed.

Utilising troops freed by the collapse of Russia in October 1917, the German Army launched a major offensive on the Western Front at the end of March 1918. The 4th Division was deployed to defend positions south of the River Ancre in France. At Dernancourt, on 5 April, the 50th Battalion assisted in the repulse of the largest German attack mounted against Australian troops during the war. The German threat persisted through April, and on ANZAC Day 1918 the 50th participated in the now- legendary attack to dislodge the enemy from Villers-Bretonneux.

The 50th Battalion continued to play an active role during the Alliesí own offensive, launched on 8 August 1918. Its last major operation of the war was the attack on the Hindenburg outpost line on 18 September, during which the 50th composed part of the 4th Divisionís reserve. The 50th Battalion ceased to exist as a separate entity when it amalgamated with the 51st Battalion on 6 March 1919".
