Historic Sites of Manitoba: Valour Road Light Post and Plaque (Valour Road, Winnipeg)

This light post was erected in 1925 by the Womens Canadian Club of Winnipeg as part of the renaming of Pine Street to Valour Road. It recognized three First World War soldiers, Frederick William Hall, Leo Clarke, and Robert Shankland, who lived on the street and were awarded the Victoria Cross, the British Commonwealth’s highest military honour.
