World War II Service Dog  ‘Bing’, the parachuting World War II dog who leapt from a Dakota plane on D-Day and led troops to victory, and with British Army sniper Jack Walton.  During the D-Day landings, ‘Bing’ would keep watch while his men slept.

In 1947, he was awarded the PDSA Dicken Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. #WWII #WarDogs Dogs And Puppies, Vintage Dog, Wwii, Dieren, Doggy, Doge, Mans Best Friend, Service Dogs
