What was unique about the Victoria Cross awarded during World War Two to New Zealander Flying Officer Lloyd Allan Trigg?

Answer: It was the only Victoria Cross ever awarded solely on evidence provided by the enemy, for an action in which there were no surviving Allied witnesses. The recommendation was made by the captain of a German submarine U-468, which was sunk in 1943 by Trigg’s aircraft.
