‘Police Dog Heroes – the history of the British Transport Police Dog Section’

Its been a while to post on the above book which details the history of the British Transport Police Dog Section from 1908 to 2015. It contains an illustrated section and more than forty recollections from retired dog-handlers. A Trust has recently been set up by the Force to look after retired dogs which is a great step forward. Many of these photographs (not in the book itself) were kindly passed on by PC Cathy Trunley and seven of them feature PD ‘Rori’ (the black dog) on GP Course passing-out in 2008. The insert from the book and newspaper cutting feature Ivor Kerslake who sadly recently passed away. (RIP)

The BTP Dog Section is the oldest in the country and has a rich and successful history. The book can be found on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1445655470/
