A salty sea dog

You may recall me mentioning Bamse, the brave Norwegian dog who served onboard a Free Norwegian ship during the Second World War. The statue in his honour has finally been unveilled. The BBC have the full story.

Apparently Bamse is Norwegian for cuddly bear.

Apparently Bamse was issued with his own bus permit. He would also go round and drag drunken crew members out of the pubs and back onto their ships.
