The brave dogs of World War 2

15 Jul 2015 | by Neha Manchanda | Posted in: Wag Wiki

Even though the war led to the loss of hundred of innoccent lives and destruction of millions of dollars worth of property, we are in awe of the brave soldiers who fought valiantly to win the war. Along with these brave soldiers, there were four legged companions who were the Mascots of different Regiments and were as important in the winning of the war as the soldiers themselves. We honour the brave dogs and the important role that they played along with their human companions.
