Australian Test cricketer, a diminutive gifted right-hand batsman. He compiled 23, 50 and 80 in his three Test innings, making a major contribution as Australia came back from 2-0 down to win the Ashes 3-2. During the Second World War, Gregory enlisted in the Royal Australian Air Force and attained the rank of Pilot Officer. He was killed in action near the village of Gaffargaon, East Bengal (now Bangladesh) on 10 June 1942 aged 26.
Sy Scholfield quotes "The Ross Gregory Story" by David Firth (South Melbourne: Lothian, 2003), pp. 3-4, in which Firth cites the birth certificate for 27 February (no time of birth), a date Gregory used as his birthday. Other sources give a birthdate of 28 February and Firth speculates that Gregory was born around midnight between the two dates.
