Highest Decorated WW2 Commonwealth Soldiers
 
If Charlie Upham, VC & Bar, was NZs highest decorated soldier; and Tom Derrick, VC, DCM, Australia's highest decorated...who were the equivalent soldiers of South Africa, Canada and the UK?

For the Canucks it would seem to be Charles Hoey, VC, MC, albeit serving in the British Army.

Gerard Norton, VC, MM, also serving with the British Army, appears to be the Springboks highest decorated.
