“Sec.-Lieut. E. J. Gray – General regret will be felt at the death in action on March 31st of Sec.-Lieut. Edward J. Gray, of the Rifle Brigade, the younger son of Dr and Mrs Alan Gray, of York House, Chaucer Road. The news was received in a telegram from the War Office on Saturday, but Dr and Mrs Gray were unfortunately away from the town. The chaplain writes: “… He was searching very pluckily for a sniper who had been causing much trouble, when he himself fell a victim. Death must have been instantaneous. Our Division has won to itself great glory, but the cost has been very high. All the officers grieve over the loss of your son, whose honest, quiet fellowship was so much appreciated. The men also speak feelingly of his good sense and kind interest in their welfare.” Sec.-Lieut. Gray, who was 20 years of age, was educated at Winchester College, which he left in October 1916.
