Victoria Cross - Valour Road The rarest and most cherished military medal in the world is the Victoria Cross. To be considered for it, one has to be a member of the British armed forces or the armed forces of a British Commonwealth country. One must perform an extraordinarily courageous act under enemy fire that is witnessed by at least one reliable observer. Then the claim has to be investigated. About 1,350 VCs have been awarded since 1856, and only 94 to Canadians (or Newfoundlanders). None are alive today. Against all odds, during the First World War, three Canadians who lived on Pine Street in Winnipeg were all awarded the VC!

Valour Road - Victoria Cross The Victoria Cross is the most difficult military medal in the world to win. A recipient must be a member of the military of a British Commonwealth country and must perform an extraordinary feat of valour in the presence of the enemy. The feat also has to be witnessed. The circumstances surrounding the feats of all potential receipients are thoroughly investigated before the award can be given. Since 1856 there have been 94 Canadians who have won the VC. Against all odds, three recipients from the First World War all lived on Pine Street in Winnipeg. This Canadian Heritage Minute gives a hint of what they did.
