  • In memory of Alick James Gregory. First cousin to my Grandfather, Alexander Cecil Gregory who still missed 'Bonnie' decades after his death. My grandfather spoke of Alick fondly and the tragic circumstances of his death during action at Sidi Rezegh in North Africa. Alick's sacrifice will be remembered. Lest we forget.

  • In memory of Alick James Gregory, he was an uncle of my late husband, John Alexander Fursdon. Alick died in November 1941 , his brother in law Thomas Walter Fursdon, also died in the same battle. So our families remember these brave men, on this ANZAC day, along with all the other brave men & women, 😥😥😍😍💙💜❤xx xx
