The Manitoba Museum will be displaying the original Victoria Cross medals awarded to three First World War soldiers who lived on the same street.
The medals, which are from the Canadian War Museum, will be displayed in the foyer of the museum from Aug. 6, almost 100 years from the day Canada declared war on Germany, until Nov. 14, Remembrance Day week.
The medals, for extreme bravery, were awarded to Corporal Leo Clarke, Sergeant-Major Frederick William Hall and Lieutenant Robert Shankland during the First World War.
Because all three lived in the same block of Pine street at the time of their enlistment, the street was later renamed Valour Road.
