    This is Bing the ParaDog. He was presented with the Victoria Cross for animals, the Dickin Medal. He served in France until Sep 44.
    A brave lil guy!

    No, Bing was not disabled. The photo I just uploaded is from the SAS exhibition at Duxford. It seems the dog had a long career.

    Yes, I wonder how these dogs were trained. Interesting it is indeed.

    Apparently poor Bing was a little reluctant to jump over Normandy because the sounds of battle put him off the job so he had to be 'helped' out the door.......
