Customised harness for and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) search dog, 2007 (c)

Military Working Dog Handler Corporal Robin Ardis, Royal Army Veterinary Corps, adapted the harness so that the dogs he worked with in Afghanistan (2001-2014) could carry their own medical supplies. The full dog medical kit included morphine, bandages and a tourniquet designed to fit smaller canine limbs.

The harness was been worn by several dogs including 'Fozzy' on Operation Herrick 4 and 'Diesel' on Herrick 7 and 9. Just over a month before the end of Herrick 9, Ardis and 'Diesel' were hit by a blast from a suicide bomber. 'Diesel' lost his hearing, but recovered enough to stay in the Army.
