Myself and a collegue in front of the Guards Memorial prior to The Royal Marines "Beating the Retreat". We don't look as smart nowadays!

The black dog on the left is my retired bitch "Megan" nearly died on Xmas day but pulled through in the end. Thank God she was insured £1,800.

Dog on the right is called "Fagan" and is due for retirement this year. Both are German Shepherds.

It was a very nice day espically as the other handler is an ex booty!

Craig - when you say ' we don't look as smart now ' - is that because you have to wear those awful yellow jackets ? Surely they would get in the way if you were chasing someone - or, do you leave that to the dog these days ?

Mervyn,

We have to wear what the Dog Section would call Training blues. A horrible dark blue shirt and trousers. It comes about from when we are employed on Firearm operations and wear the same as our armed collegues. I guess it makes us less of a target. It does have the benefit of not showing up the mud when we have been searching the usual dumps where our little miscreants tend to hide.

Craig
