Valour Road

Valour Road

Valour Road is a street in the West End of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was formerly called Pine Street, but was renamed in 1925 to "Valour Road" in recognition of the courage of three young men who all lived on the 700 block of the street and served in the First World War. Corporal Leo Clarke, Sergeant-Major Frederick William Hall, Lieutenant Robert Shankland all received the Victoria Cross for acts of bravery during the war.

A one-minute "Heritage Minute", recounting the details of the heroic actions of these men, also titled "Valour Road", remains a common sight on Canadian television.
