Ella Charity Dart was the daughter of Henry John and Evelyn Dart of Mundoora. Henry Dart was the head teacher at the Mundoora Public School. A qualified nurse, Ella had undertaken her three years training at the Port Pirie Hospital. She was 27 years old when she was appointed to the Australian Army Nursing Service on 19 July 1917. Ella embarked from Sydney aboard HMAT A33 "Ayshire" on 15 September 1917. At the end of October Ella commenced duty at the Nasrieh Hospital, Cairo. The day after Christmas Ella was admitted to Citidal Military Hospital for a period of 3 days and again on 29 April 1918. The nature of Ella’s illness is not recorded but it must have been serious for her to be in hospital for over 3 months. Ella was discharged from hospital on 7 August and on 30 August embarked for Australia aboard SS "Wiltshire". Ella disembarked in Perth on 3 October and proceeded to 5th Military District for duty. She returned to Adelaide on 20 June 1919 and her appointment was terminated on 2 August.
