The Victoria Cross (VC) is the British military’s highest decoration and is awarded to members of the armed forces for exceptional valour ‘in the face of the enemy’.


The VC was introduced by Queen Victoria in 1856 but it was only in 1911, when King George V visited India, that Gurkhas became eligible for the award. Since then 26 VCs have been awarded to soldiers of the Brigade of Gurkhas. Please visit the Gurkha VCs page to read more.
