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. After the war, he returned to his owner in Essex – and his peacetime name of ‘Brian’ – before dying of natural causes in 1955, aged 13. In 1947, he was awarded the PDSA Dicken Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross. #WWII #WarDogs
