He went on to play alongside Bradman before enlisting in the RAAF and serving in England during WWII. Gregory was killed when his aircraft crashed in Bangladesh in June, 1942. His story, captured in frank and touching wartime diary entries, is truly inspiring, typifying a uniquely Australian spirit. First Edition.Ross Gerald Gregory (27 February 1916 ? 10 June 1942) was an Australian Test cricketer.Gregory, a diminutive gifted right-hand batsman, was a precocious batting talent, making his debut for Victoria while still at school and his Test cricket debut before the age of 21 in the 1936-37 season, after scoring 128 for his state against Gubby Allen's MCC tourists. Although this was his only first class century he scored 17 fifties in his 33 games and took 50 wickets with his leg breaks and googlies. 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) in 1942 aged 26.Born in Malvern, he was educated at Wesley College, Melbourne.
