BRAVEHOUNDS are usually named after dogs awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal “for gallantry”. However, we must also remember the human handlers. Their bravery and dedication for the welfare of others is given in full knowledge of the risks. For their courage and commitment, we are eternally grateful.

The PDSA Dickin Medal was instituted in 1943 in the United Kingdom by Maria Dickin to honour the work of animals in World War. It is a bronze medallion, bearing the words “For Gallantry” and “We Also Serve” within a laurel wreath, carried on a ribbon of striped green, dark brown, and pale blue. It is awarded to animals that have displayed “conspicuous gallantry or devotion to duty while serving or associated with any branch of the Armed Forces or Civil Defence Units”. The award is commonly referred to as “the animals’ Victoria Cross”.
