Upfield wandered the country as a cook, sheep station boundary rider, miner, and other itinerant jobs. he served in the Australian Imperial Force in World War I, fighting in Gallipoli, Egypt, and France. He married Ann Douglas, returned to England, worked as a private secretary, considered the move "a disaster", returned to Australia, failed to reconcile with wife and son, and again wandered the country soaking up incidents for his writing.
