We don't often hear about animals that have served in war & throughout history there have been tales of bravery & valour. I came across this story today & thought I'd share it here. A thread about Bamse the St Bernard🐶#RemembranceDay #LestWeForget #TheyServedToo
Bamse means 'teddy bear' in Norwegian. He belonged to the captain of a ship (Thorod) that was requistioned by the navy as a coastal patrol vessel. After the occupation of Norway the ship escaped to the UK.
Bamse took his duties seriously standing guard at the forward gun turret even during heated battle. He was fitted with a special helmet for protection.
