Finally, in 1918; as the records reveal, he received multiple gunshot wounds and was hospitalised and returned to Australia. He had always complained of being gassed and suffered with a cough all through his middle age. He was notably promoted through the ranks at various times, in the first instance to Corporal and then to SGT.

As I have just stumbled across this entry of Oscar O’Grady, I feel it necessary to make a note of what little is known of him, from our side of the family - being the Whale side.
Our mother Margaret Mary (Madge) Craft (nee Whale) spoke of Oscar fondly, the story we know of him is that his mother had died and he then came to live with them - her mother was Ellen Whale (nee O’Grady) who married James Ernest Whale. Until I found this information we didn’t know that Oscar had joined the army, so it is with some surprise and admiration I make this entry to mark his bravery.
