Australian Legends: The Victoria Cross - Minisheet

The Victoria Cross is the highest honour that can be bestowed for acts of valour "in the presence of the enemy".

In 1991 the Victoria Cross for Australia was instituted and subsequently awarded to the four other Legends for acts including "conspicuous gallantry" during the conflict in Afghanistan.
