Photographs depicting soldiers in World War One posing with the dogs they kept as pets and messengers have been uncovered, including this one of a Staff Sergeant (Horse Farrier) of the Army Service Corps (ASC) with the Corps pet dogs, Hissy and Jack, in France in 1916

Dogs performed a number of vital roles for soldiers, acting as scouts and seeking out the wounded. The animals were highly regarded by their owners, such as Officers, Warrant Officers, Staff Sergeants, of the Army Service Corps (ASC) who pose with their company dog in 1917

Dogs were quicker, more agile and smaller making them efficient messengers during World War One, like this dog pictured in France in 1918
