Imshi, mascot of 2/1 Anti Tank Regiment, sits beside a corrugated iron tank. She is wearing a jacket with corporal stripes. Her name was derived from an arabic word meaning 'go away'. Imshi travelled with the regiment through Egypt, Greece and Syria. Whilst in a camp in Syria she met with another famous mascot, Horrie the Wog Dog, 2/1 Machine Gun Battalion, lifting his spirits after he had been ill and recovering from a wound received in Egypt.

Shepherd John Dagg and his dog Sheila. The Dickin Medal was awarded to the shepherd and his dog following their courage in rescuing the crew of a crashed Flying Fortress bomber.

The scruffy little stray peered warily at me from under her filthy, matted curls. She looked to be a poodle mix of maybe 15 pounds and animal control had been getting calls about her for a month or so. I called softly to her but she tucked her tail and trotted away. I spent the next several weeks trying every trick in the book to capture the little dog but she was too shy to approach and too clever to be cornered or trapped. She slept under old cars behind the meat company and roamed the nearby car dealerships daily.
