“In the middle of the night, in the middle of winter, in the middle of a war, a puppy was born.”
Freda was the loyal, good-luck mascot for a brave young soldier named Sam. As he battled explosions on the Western Front, Sam dreamed of the day they would return home. Inspired by true events.
Dedicated to Freda, mascot of the New Zealand Rifle Brigade 5th Battalion.
Note of interest – Freda’s original collar is part of the collection at the National Army Museum.
