Puppy Named In Honour Of Red Arrows Pilot

Meet Red Four - the puppy being trained up to help injured service personnel.

A puppy - that's gonna be trained up to help injured service personnel - has been named in honour of Jon Egging - the Red Arrows pilot who died soon after a display at the Bournemouth air festival back in August.

Red Four is one of six puppies taken on by the Hounds for Heroes Charity.

The purpose of the charity is to provide specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK armed forces and civilian emergency services.

They aim to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life for those they help.

Red Four is now in training.
