Thirty-year-old Grant survived a massacre in infancy, enlisted in 1916 and fought bravely in Bullecourt I. Wounded and captured, he became inmate-in-charge of the German Crescent Camp for coloured Allies saving many lives. Facing racism on returning home, he was to die, alone in 1951, on Bare Island, La Perouse.
