Award Listing - 10th Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force

The following is a listing of all known awards made to soldiers serving in the 10th Battalion during the First World War.  The number of awards is most impressive, especially compared to the paucity of awards made during the Second World War for bravery and/or leadership.  The 10th Battalion could boast of the first man in the entire CEF to be awarded a second Bar to the Distinguished Conduct Medal, as well as the most awards of the Military Medal for a single action (some sixty awards were made to 10th Battalion men for the fighting at Hill 70).

Entries in bold indicate posthumous awards.
