Captain Grice, who was 32 years of age, was educated partly at the Geelong Grammar School and partly at Clifton College, England. In 1902 he joined the 60th Rifles, but retired from the army in 1903, and settled down at Inverell, in New South Wales, where in 1911 he married Miss Clarice Joyce Hewlett, of Waverley, Sydney. After war broke out he proceeded to England, and obtained a commission in the 2nd Scottish Rifles, the regiment of his brother George, who, as a lieutenant, was killed on Christmas Day, 1901, at Tweefontein, South Africa.
