Today I want to talk a little about animals, these loyal and devoted friends of mankind. And the services they always give to people, and we people ignore them.

Have you ever heard of the Animal Bravery Medal? The founder of the Sick Animal Charity (PDSA) that was so impressed by the plight of brave and serviceable animals during the war, founded the Dickin Medal. This medal is known around the world as the most honorable medal, which is given to animals involved in military operations.

In the following, I will name some brave and service animals who have won this medal for their bravery in military operations.

Diesel

Diesel was a French police dog. Five days after the 2016 Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed, were used to help find the perpetrator of the massacre. During one of the attacks, 7-year-old Diesel was sent to explore the area. The moment he entered the place where the person was hiding, he suddenly jumped towards that person. His jump caused a shooting in the room, in which Diesel was tragically killed by a bullet.

Paddy

Paddy was an Irish pigeon, trained to serve in the Royal Air Force. Paddy's flight skills in the Air Force Rescue Unit impressed his trainer so much that he was assigned to the US Army during World War II, to help land the historic Normandy. During Operation 1944, important information about Allied progress was given to Paddy. Paddy escaped the German hawks in disbelief, and continued to fly despite the bad weather. Paddy won the Dickin Medal of Courage for flying 730 kilometers from Normandy to England in less than five hours. He returned home after the war as the only Northern Ireland medalist, and continued to lead a normal life until his death in 1954.

Simon

Simon is the only cat to win the Dickin Medal of Bravery. During the Chinese Civil War, a British ship was involved in the accident. In a 101-day siege, rats threatened the ship's food supply. But by eradicating the mice, Simon was able to prevent the ship's crew from perishing. Many sailors, who were affected by the death of their other companions, considered the presence of this cat as a consolation. When the ship came out of the accident, Simon was treated like a hero. But he died three weeks later from injuries sustained during the incident. And was buried with military honors.

Warrior

Warrior is known as the horse that the Germans couldn't kill in World War I. He carried a general behind him in several bloody battles in World War I. He was on the front lines throughout the war, and serving for four years. He got stuck in burning stables twice. He survived the firing of guns and mortars. He remained under the rubble, and sank into the mud. But he returned home safely to the Isle of Wight after the war, until he died at the age of 32. Warrior's courage happened long before Dickin's medal was introduced, but he was never forgotten. He later received Dickin's first World War I medal.

Many brave and courageous animals, with their extraordinary bravery over the years, won the Dickin Medal. It reminds us of how animals can be brave, selfless, and best friends for us. They have always sacrificed their lives for humans and their duties. They are always praiseworthy and respected. The number of these animals is large. Today I had a short opportunity, maybe in the next articles I will introduce some other brave and courageous animals.

Always respect animals, because they are our best friends... 🤍🕊️

Hearing stories of animals sacrificing their lives to save human is one of the things I found d so impressive and makes me think they are meant to be our helpers and we shouldn't kill them indiscriminately especially for meat...

While humans love to talk about their accomplishments, animals, of course, are silent. But many of them do things we never dreamed of, using their speed, courage, and kindness. We still have much to learn from our pets.

Exactly, dear Belozoriana, animals have done great service to humanity throughout history, but as you said, because they can not speak, all their services have been silenced.
