Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, has pledged his support for the new national memorial to honour military working dogs.
Stephen McPartland MP said, “The outstanding bravery of our military service dogs over the years has gone unrecognised for too long. I was proud to hear of some of the truly heroic acts these working dogs have done to protect our Armed Forces. I know that this memorial will mean a great deal to dog handlers and those with military connections.”
Flight Sergeant Michael Barrow RAF Police said, “Many thousands of dogs have served with the Armed Forces throughout many conflicts. They are a great force multiplier and have saved lives in various guises.
“To finally have them and their contribution recognised is superb. The design and location of the memorial are both stunning and it’s unveiling will be a great spectacle. I am looking forward to seeing the completed design and being able to pay respect to all Military Working Dogs.”
The National Military Working Dog Memorial will be based in Brynford, North Wales. The mausoleum will cost around £150,000 to build and will feature four bronze statues who will guard over the plaques commemorating the work of the Armed Forces service animals who have served with distinction. A fund-raising drive is now on to build the memorial following the granting of charity status to the National Military Working Dogs trust.
