Huge thanks to the Tyrwhitt-Drake family and the Head Keeper, Nick Canter, for the very kind invitation to hold a trial on this fabulous shoot set in the Hampshire downs. A driven stake which gave the judges every opportunity to thoroughly test the final dogs. Many thanks to the guns, the beaters, the many helpers and the judges for a brilliant day.
The photographs on the day were very mindly taken by Rosemary Sadler who asked for a donation to Charity. She has asked us to add the following:
War Dogs Remembered are very grateful to the Guildford Working Gundog Club for their very generous donation. The Charity raises funds to educate and share knowledge around the tremendous work that these dogs have undertaken, some paying the ultimate price for their service. As part of our activities, we are currently involved in projects to build activity trails dedicated to dogs that have served, for dogs and owners to visit, connect and engage with. Your donation will contribute to one of these trails which will be based in towns and cities to give opportunity to dogs who have less access to open fields and woods. Many thanks for your help and generosity.
