See Notes under Margaret Currie (Ulph-Smith) for details of "Jack's" early childhood. Jack attended King Edward VII College, Sheffield. Following that he worked as a Junior Clerk at Hadfields Steel Foundry in Sheffield during the latter half of 1911. Following that it is believed he was employed as an Apprentice Fitter (possibly for the same Company) until 1914. When he was just over 17 years old, on March 19, 1914, he left England for Australia on the P.& O. 11,000 ton T.S.S.BELTANA. On arrival in Australia he apparently made his way to the Northern Rivers of N.S.W. where he worked for a time "on the Roads". He subsequently trained as and was employed as a Herd-tester, testing Dairy Herds for Milk and Cream quality. On August 20, 1915 he enlisted from Brisbane in the 47th Battalion, Australian Imperial Forces AIF A photograph of Jack taken sometime during WWI states he was in the 13/15th Rifles. Who or what that Battalion was is at present unknown. Following Service in Egypt and France, he was discharged, as a Corporal, Medically unfit, as a result of "Trench Feet" acquired in the Trenches of France. On his return to Australia, he was given a Government Land Grant, which proved to be an un-workable swamp. He abandoned this; and was employed for a time in various Government Driving jobs in Brisbane. He was subsequently employed as a Sales Representative in the Printing Industry. During the course of his employment with the Howard Printing Works, at Graham St., South Brisbane he married "the Daughter of the Boss", Lucy Howard. He later worked for Simpson Halligan & Co., in the same capacity, where he was employed for a total of about 21 years. From late 1946 he was the Proprietor of both a Boarding House, and a General Store at Southport, South of Brisbane. Neither of these were exceptionally successful and he returned to Brisbane again as a Printer's Rep- resentative with Watson Ferguson. In 1949 he again left Brisbane, purchasing a Pineapple Farm at Montville, on the Ranges to the North of Brisbane. After about 8 years he returned to Brisbane to again work for Simpson Halligan as a Printer's Rep During this time, as a result of being a constant heavy Smoker, aggravated (probably) by the use of Pesticides and Weedicides on the Farm he was constantly ill, suffering from a form of Anaemia and Emphysema. When they were married, Jack and "Luce" made their (New) Home at Sandgate Road, Nundah, at the top of "Buck's Hill". They lived here until they bought the Boarding House, "Rowallen", The Esplanade, Southport. From there they purchased the "Tropical Cafe", Brighton Parade, Southport. From Southport they returned to Brisbane to live at Oxlade Drive, New Farm. They then moved to the "Farm" at Flaxton Road, Montville. Following their final return to Brisbane they lived firstly at 46 Speight Street, Brighton; and finally at 52 Lovegrove Street, Zillmere. ... "Jack" was always a genuine "Gentleman". He was completely honest and above-board; and always had the respect of his associates. He was always willing to carry a part of the load of whatever Social Activity in which he was involved. He was firstly Secretary of his Football Club, "Brisbane City" about the mid 20's. He was subsequently Secretary of Robert McGavin Masonic Lodge, Vulture St., South Brisbane, of which he was a member for many years also serving as Worpshipful Master. He was also a member of the Grand Lodge (Masonic) of Queensland where he served as Sword Bearer. As a result of changing fortune (the financial difficulty of running a Pineapple Farm) he retired from his association with the Masonic lodge, although he was well enough thought of for the Members to offer to defer his fees. During the 1939-45 War he tried to enlist; but was rejected due to his age and prior disability. However, he did serve with the Auxilliary Fire Service, mostly practising hosing "the bush" around Nundah; and "pumping out" the odd Air Raid Shelter. During his time as a Pineapple Farmer he was active with the Montville Pineapple Farmers Association; and the Committee of Direction of Fruit Marketing. As well as being the "Gentleman" mentioned above, he was kind and tolerant and a loving Father and Grand-father. ...
H.U.Smith. January 1988.

In a Letter, dated November 17, 1938, Janet Clara Stanger-Smith wrote to A.J.U.Smith after a long period of no contact, part of which said:
"I should have known a lot more about you, how the first arrangements materialized for you and not Harold to live with the March Grandpapa [John Stanger Smith and Emma Ulph]. I wish I knew where Harold is - does anybody know? It seems so sad to have lost sight of him so completely. I don't even know if he came through the War all right. Did you see him at all during the War? Poor Harold, he had a rather bad Legacy of nerves. His health much improved in March [The Township or Village] with the open air live. Alas! he lacked strength of will & I always think that was due to Minnie's drastic treatment at Beeston. As soon as I went for a short time to keep house there, I got rid of her - her influence was not good.
You were then such a jolly little boy. I was loth to part with you when Sheffield [the Chesterman Family?] claimed you; but it had to be & you had more opportunities than ever March would have furnished."
