Sherbrooke Hussars: In Hoc Signo Vinces


Three successive attacks on a German strongpoint by a company of the British Columbia Regiment failed, with heavy casualties, including all the officers. Company Sergeant-Major Hanna gathered the survivors and organised a successful fourth assault, leading the way through the barbed wire and machine-gun fire. He received the Victoria Cross.


Lieutenant Honey, the only surviving officer, took command of a company of the Manitoba Regiment and led it in a series of successful attacks at Bourlon Wood in France. He twice went ahead alone to eliminate troublesome machine-gun nests, and finally fell mortally wounded. Elsewhere on the front, Lance-Corporal Lewis, Northamptonshire Regiment, who had previously distinguished himself in the destruction of a machine-gun post, also fell mortally wounded leading from the front in an attack on another formidable German position. Both Honey and Lewis were awarded a posthumous Victoria Cros.
