3 bustes petite

Stop 7 (part 2 of 2) - Victoria Cross

In front of the Vimy Cross, there are bronze busts of the three Victoria Cross recipients of the Royal 22e Régiment. The Victoria Cross is the highest honour a Canadian soldier can receive. The decoration is awarded “for the most conspicuous bravery, a daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice, or extreme devotion to duty, in the presence of the enemy.”

Corporal Joseph Kaeble and Lieutenant Jean Brillant received the award posthumously during the First World War. Captain Paul Triquet received his during the Second World War. Unlike the first two, Triquet survived his heroic actions.
