In reply to the recent letter about police dogs.

I served in the RAF Police Provost section joining in 1952.

I did my training at RAF Netheravon alongside the police dog training school and the police driving school.

I saw first hand the dedication of the handlers and the ability that the dogs achieved.

After training I served in North Wales and then was posted to RAF Police HQ in Germany.

We worked alongside a police dog section on many occasions. Here I saw first the value of these well trained dogs.

Some years ago I saw the RAF Police dog display at the Royal Tournament at Earls Court. It was one of the highlights of the show.

I am sure that the public enjoyed the displays by the team when they performed in Weymouth during Carnival week.
