The Dogs of War

BillyNoMates

War Hero
A British trained Tracker Dog who saw "action" in Malaya,
and was eventually Killed in Action in Vietnam. This website
is an interesting insight into the use of dogs as "soldiers"
There is quite a bit of British input (Jungle Warfare Training,
Royal Army Vetinary Corps etc)

Posted in DL's because I think its worth a read.



This is Shadow B387, a British trained Lab. and veteran of the Malaya Insurrection.
From information which we have from that time period, we found that many of these
Veteran Tracker Dogs had been decorated - and in the British Army, they held rank
- probably higher than the rest of the Team!
