Image of UK Press print: "Ighty" British motor launch dog mascot wounded at Dieppe, 1942

A very nice UK official Admirality Photograph (No. A. 11576.XT)

The mascot dog 'Ighty' was the only casualty of the Dieppe Raid on their boat.
The Nazi German state flag is captured from an armed German Tanker. The swastika is shown inverses for propaganda.
The Tanker's crew abandoned the ship and the M.L. crew boated her and sunk her after taking the flag.
