In 1925, a street in Winnipeg’s West End was renamed as Valour Road, in recognition of the courage of three young men who served on in the First World War. All three men lived on the same 700 block of what was then called Pine Street. Corporal Leo Clarke, Sergeant-Major Frederick William Hall, and Lieutenant Robert Shankland each received the Victoria Cross for acts of bravery during the war.
