Many of them give their lives in the name of protecting their squadrons.

    Rip was a stray who adopted an air raid warden unit after being bombed out of his London dockland home. They couldn't stop him becoming a search and rescue dog - it seemed he just did it for the enjoyment. In 12 months between 1940 and 1941, the scruffy looking mutt combined all the inherited skills of uncertain parentage to rescue more than 100 people from the air-raid ruins. Then he carried on the good work for another four years until the end of the war.
