ribbonmc.gif (1108 bytes) Military Cross (MC)

 
This medal was instituted on 28 December 1915, for award to commissioned officers of the substantive rank of Captain or below (including acting and temporary Majors) or Warrant Officers for distinguished and meritorious services in battle. In 1920, the terms were altered to clearly state the award was for gallant and distinguished services in action.

The Military Cross was replaced in 1972 when the Canadian Honours System was introduced, replacing many of the former British Empire/British Commonwealth awards currently in use by the Canadian Government and Department of National Defence.  The medals awarded under the Canadian Honours system are no longer associated with any particular group of ranks and all service personnel are entitled equally to all the major bravery awards.

The following awards were made to members of the 10th Battalion, CEF, and The Calgary Highlanders.  Posthumous awards are highlighted in grey.
