Caesar the Anzac Dog
In loving memory of Caeser the bulldog, official mascot of the 4th Battalion (A Company) New Zealand Rifle Brigade, who served in the First World War and died in action. A trained Red Cross dog, Caeser helped save the lives of wounded soldiers on the battlefield. Caeser's official collar, which he wore when he led the grand parade down Queens Street before the Brigade left New Zealand is held at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.
The collar on this soft toy faithfully copies his original, complete with spelling error!
