Jack Basil Craig
If my grandfather had not survived the landing at Gallipoli 100 years ago today, I would not be here to help tell his story.
John, aka Jack, Craig was my “father” for a time, and that, I think, is why I survived the trauma of my parent’s separation.
He was a peace-loving man, an environmentalist and early nutritionist, a home gardener and inventor, and he cared for others, especially the “battlers” and new arrivals who sought a future in Australia, as he had.
Jack Craig stayed as a stretcher bearer until the Evacuation of Gallipoli with the 2nd and 14th Field Ambulance through Europe, and enlisted in the air force in WWII.
This tribute is dedicated to the 15 direct descendants of this wonderful man, and his wider family, and to all who choose peace over conflict, just as he did.
More about Jack is still to be written...
