Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Son of James and Catherine Grant, of Gaskmore, Laggan, Scotland.

    "Not many days had passed before an Expeditionary Force was in course of preparation in New Zealand, and one of the first to offer his services was my chief reporter, Jack Grant. It was with sadness that I parted with him, for he was keen as mustard and as loyal as could be. He went with the Rifle Brigade to Gallipoli, and the last that was seen of poor Jack was when he was endeavouring to bandage a leg that had been shattered by a shell. He was only one of many hundreds of the best of our manhood who fell in that cruel campaign." (Reminiscences of Arthur Henry Vile, p. 90) AWMM
