Hello there,

I hope I am putting this introduction in the right place. My name is Noel, I collect historical dog pictures, collars, brasses & books, with working dogs and Military Working Dogs being an area of interest. I am your typical history geek with my main area of interest being the medieval period, but I've lately become very interested in the dogs of WWI and WWII.

You could say that I am somewhat of a canine historian. I am looking forward to sharing my working dog photo collection.

Hello Noel;

I liked reading your intro. I look forward to seeing your photos and reading your entries about the canine contributions in the war(s).

Please post regularly and often!

Thank you!

I need to spend some time with my scanner as I just picked up some pictures at auction and at a militaria show last weekend.

Thank you Gentlemen. I'm off to spend some time with my scanner so I can post up some of my treasures.

I've got some older photos that were taken in the war era, but do not have soldiers or police in them that I'd like to post as well. I've been researching the barenbeisser/bullenbeiser dogs of Germany, the predecessor to today's Boxer dog breed.

Hi Joe,

Thank you for the photos. Before I met my husband, I was only collecting photos in which I could see the dog collars in as I make dog collars and I am very very knowledgeable about them due to my endless research on them. I can date paintings and photographs by the dog collars on the dogs. I've been told that next to the curator of the Dog Collar Museum at Leeds Castle in England, I am the most knowledgeable person on the subject.

I'd love to be put into contact with John. I'd share my photos with him if they would be of use to him. I am currently editing hundreds of pictures for Col. Scott Pritchett's next book or I would offer to help him with his dog book.

My husband introduced me to another dog picture and document collector whom my friends have enviously dubbed my "Canadian Dog Father" (a pun on Fairy God Mother) who has broadened my collecting horizons quite a bit. Of course, my husband has encouraged and enabled my collecting. :-)

Welcome to the forum!

Most, if not all of the dogs shown in the photos thus far are pets or mascots and not real "working" dogs. Is your interest in dogs kept by the soldiers as pets or in trained duty canines?

Both!

I have pets, military mascots and working dogs. Usually, what catches my eye and prompts me to buy pictures is the relationship between the dog and it's handler.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
