Australian Defence Force Trackers and War Dogs

Dedicated to the Australian Tracker Dogs that served in South Vietnam

1967 - 1971

They did not return from the war

Caesar    Cassius*
Janus      Julian
Juno       Justin
Marcian  Marcus
Milo        Tiber
Trajan     * Died on service

Down jungle track through shot and shell
Ears pricked high, keen sense of smell
Our tracker dogs with care and poise
Alert to ambush, foreign noise
Never whimper, whine or bark
Their service honoured with this plaque
No medals pinned to hairy chest
They stayed behind, they were the best.

All gave something, some gave all

Those who knew you will never forget you
