Dogs in war This is the story of one man's struggle to develop the British War Dog School. Richardson began experimenting with military and police dogs in I898, and in I9I0 began petitioning for a British military dog programme. He finally received official approval with support of officers who were unofficially, and successfully, using his dogs in the field. Over 2000 dogs were trained and sent to the front to work as Red Cross dogs, messengers, sentries and patrol dogs - the lives saved were estimated in thousands. Cummins recounts not only Richardson's struggle, but also the history of war dogs through the ages. Researched with the help of the Imperial War Museum, London The author, Bryan Cummins, obtained a considerable amount of information for the writing of this book from the Imperial War Museum in London. Publication coincides with the unveiling of The Animals in War Memorial On 24th November 2004, a new monument The Animals in War Memorial will be unveiled at Brook Gate, Park Lane, London by the Princess Royal, patron of the fund. The monument honours all animals that have served and suffered in war.
