Grey’s story is about resilience, and not just against the harsh Winter’s on the Western Front. The 25th Battalion A.I.F joined the war at Gallipoli for the final stages of the campaign and went on to serve through to October 1918.
At Poziers on the Western Front in 1916 the Battalion suffered massive losses, but the lads pressed on. In September 1918 the powers that be tried to disband the Battalion and spread the lads out across other formations, but the 25th refused to go quietly. They eventually won the right to go into the line one last time, and on 3rd October 1918, helped break through the German defences around Beaurevoir.
