Below information on the son Of Captain O'Sullivan, George Lidwell

"HELLES - THE BATTLE OF GULLY RAVINE - Captain Gerald Robert O’Sullivan and Sergeant James Somers, 1st Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, 87th Brigade, 29th Division - The Battle of Gully Ravine had been fiercely raging on since 28 June with the British fighting to hold on to their gains, and the Turks fighting to regain their lost ground. Trenches had been changing hands several times in the fierce hand to hand fighting that ensued.
During the night, 1 July, it had started to rain when another Turkish counter attack was launched, this one successfully forced the Gurkhas out of trench J12. Captain O'Sullivan, with just over a company of Inniskillings and with bombing support from Corporal Somers, restored the situation by recapturing J12.
A report by Lieutenant-Colonel Buckley stated how the two men responded to the knowledge that J12 was in Turkish hands:

"He immediately attacked, leading the storming party. Accompanied by Cpl Somers, he advanced in the open along the parapet of the trench, bombing the interior as he regained it. The Turks bombed back and from where I was I could distinctly see the flashes of the Turkish bombs, generally two to Capt O'Sullivan's one. we had only the jam-pot bomb ... while the Turks had quite a useful bomb."
Captain Gerald Robert O'Sullivan was born on 8 November 1888 at Frankfield, Douglas, County Cork, son of Lieutenant-Colonel George Lidwell O'Sullivan and his wife Charlotte. He spent most of his boyhood in Dublin, entering Wimbledon College in 1899. When he left Wimbledon in June 1906 he entered the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, being commissioned on 9 May 1909 in the Inniskillings as a Second Lieutenant. He saw service in China, which included the revolution of 1911, and later in India with his battalion.
When war broke out in August 1914 the 1st Battalion Inniskillings were brought back to England to form part of 87 Brigade, 29th Division. The 29th Division sailed for Egypt in March 1915, landing in Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. O'Sullivan now commanded a company and fought many actions against the Turks in the Helles sector as the breakout from the beaches commenced. One such action was on the night of 18 June, when O'Sullivan organised an immediate counterattack that drove the Turks out of the recently occupied Turkey Trench previously held by the South Wales Borders on the Inniskilling flank. In the VC action during the night of 1 July 1915 he was wounded in the leg, and evacuated to hospital in Egypt.
His VC citation appeared in the London Gazette of 1 September 1915.
"For most conspicuous bravery during operations south west of Krithia, on the Gallipoli Peninsula. On the night of the 1st-2nd July, 1915, when it was essential that a portion of trench which had been lost should be regained, Captain O'Sullivan, although not belonging to the troops at this point, volunteered to lead a party of bomb throwers to effect the recapture. He advanced in the open under a very heavy fire, and in order to throw his bombs with greater effect, got up on the parapet, where he was completely exposed to the fire of the enemy occupying the trench. He was finally wounded, but not before his inspiring example had led on his party to make further efforts, which resulted in the recapture of the trench."
