Judy was a liver and white English pointer, mascot of Royal Navy gunboats Gnat and Grasshopper, and the only animal ever made prisoner of war: in 1942 she became Japanese prisoner number '81A-Medan'. This book tells the story of Judy and how, whether dragging survivors from a torpedoed ship or scavenging food for her starving fellow inmates, she was cherished by the Allied servicemen in the Japanese camps. After the war, Judy was awarded the Dickin medal.
