Following the award of a VC to Cpl Willy Apiata of the NZSAS I was curious why it was constantly referred to as the VC of New Zealand. After all there is only one VC right? Wrong. Apparently as well as the UK, New Zealand, Australia and Canada all have their own VC with slightly different designs and award criteria which I had no idea about. For example the Canadian VC has Pro Valore instead of For Valour on it. Bearing this in mind and purely as an academic exercise this raises an interesting question. If like Noel Chavasse or Charles Upham you were awarded a second UK VC it would become VC and bar. However, if you were awarded a UK VC then a Australian VC for example could you wear both as they are technically separate awards with different criteria?
