War sea dog statue shipped abroad





A statue of a sea dog who became an unlikely war hero has been escorted from Scotland by the Norwegian Navy.

Bamse was a mascot on the Norwegian Navy minesweeper the Thorrod, which was stationed in Montrose and Dundee during World War II.

It is claimed the St Bernard saved the lives of two sailors during the war.

The Norwegians are shipping a copy of the statue, which was erected in Montrose in 2006, from Leith Docks to Honningsvag, his original home.
