The Victoria Cross (VC) is the highest military decoration awarded for valour "in the face of the enemy". The VC was introduced on 29 January 1856 by Queen Victoria to honour acts of valour during the Crimean War. During World War 1, 72 Victoria Crosses were awarded to Canadian soldiers. Six of these were won at the Battle of Hill 70.
