History of War - - HEROES OF THE VICTORIA CROSS -

It seemed that O’leary had at last de­cided that his work for the day was done and he re­turned to his com­pany with his two Ger­man pris­on­ers. His ac­tions had saved the lives of many of his Bri­tish forces and O’leary re­ceived a bat­tle­field pro­mo­tion to sergeant on 4 Fe­bru­ary and was rec­om­mended for the VC, which was gazetted on 18 Fe­bru­ary.
