North African Campaign

Rob – a collie from the Special Air Service, received the award on 22 January 1945 “Rob took part in landings during the North African Campaign with an Infantry unit and later served with a Special Air Unit in Italy as patrol and guard on small detachments lying-up in enemy territory. His presence with these parties saved many of them from discovery and subsequent capture or destruction. Rob made over 20 parachute descents.”Picture: PDSA
