The words of his posthumous Mention in Despatches says it all. Unlike today in WW2 if a soldier was killed in action the only recognition by award for gallantry, other than the Victoria Cross, was a posthumous Mention in Despatches.

Pete Rogers, son of LSgt Joe Rogers MM & nephew of TSM Ken McAllister. Both No2 Commando.
God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
