The Victoria Cross is the highest award for gallantry that a British and Commonwealth serviceman can achieve. A recommendation for the Victoria Cross is normally issued by an officer at regimental level or equivalent and has to be supported by three witnesses. 634 VC's were awarded in World War One and 182 in World War Two.
