Visit to I.B.C.C.
Class 4 visited the International Bomber Command Centre (Lincoln) yesterday. We were told some amazing facts about WW2. We enjoyed the true story about how a dog helped in the war.
During the war, a pilot was walking down the street and found a dog. He stroked it and fed it and they became lifelong friends. The dog followed him where every they went. When he was at the RAF base the dog was with him, and when they went on flights, the dog would wait for him to come back. One day the dog crept onto the plane and the man had to share his oxygen with him as they flew over 10,000 feet. When the other crew members found out, they made an oxygen mask especially for the dog, Many years later, while searching a bomb site, the dog kept scratching at the same bit of dirt. When the crew members went to investigate, there was an 8 month old baby still alive buried in the rubble. The dog saved the lives of 17 others and was awarded a medal.
