Judy, the dogged PoW who defied the Japanese

Devotee: Judy the dog met Frank Williams in a prisoner of war camp in Medan in 1942. He shared his daily handful of maggoty boiled rice with Judy and in return she alerted him to scorpions, snakes and if guards were near. She was the only dog officially recognized as a Prisoner of War during WW2 and won the Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross.
