This march in Melton Mowbray in April, to honour military dogs, didn't get much publicity unfortunately - doubt the crowds were shouting 'they're incredibly unreliable'


Melton's moving salute to its military heroes
By Leicester Mercury

April 11, 2014

'right of passage': The Royal Army Veterinary Corps, based at the Defence Animal Centre in the town, on the march

Thousands gathered to honour four-legged military heroes, their handlers and riders as they exercised their ancient "right of passage" to parade through a town's streets.

Crowds, several deep in places, lined the streets of Melton to clap and cheer the Royal Army Veterinary Corps (RAVC) personnel, dogs and horses which are based at the Defence Animal Centre (DAC) in the town.

Among the 24 spaniels, German shepherds and other breeds on parade were 12 which have seen front-line duty in Afghanistan with handlers from 1st Military Working Dog Regiment (1MWD).

Good to see the Leicester Mercury backing sniffer dogs.

For a change

Another article about "war dogs". Amazing how many lives they have saved.  Sorry for the extreme long link. I should have gone to tiny ulr
