William George Robinson was born in Glenorcky, VIC and was a Painter by trade when he enlisted from Ballarat in the No 1 Australian General Hospital on 4 January 1915 at the age of 18. His unit embarked from Fremantle, Western Australia, on board A62 Wandilla on 25 June 1915 and was attached to the 1st Australian Casualty Clearing Station in France. Throughout the war he had constant health issues, at different times suffering tonsillitis, pleurisy, mumps and rheumatism. Yet each time he recovered and returned to duty, his final duty being to accompany a hospital ship back to Australia in April 1919 as part of the nursing staff on board.
