To mark the 80th anniversary of the PDSA Dickin Medal, Emma Worrall will examine the role of dogs in the First World War.

In the summer of 1918, newspaper headlines across Britain appealed for ‘More War Dogs’. In response, owners volunteered their family pets, and the police and dogs’ homes sent strays.

But how did a dog become a ‘War Dog’?

In this intriguing talk, Emma Worrall will highlight the recruitment, logistics, veterinary care and employment of the British Army’s messenger dog service during the First World War, as well as the problems encountered when utilising a canine service.
