One Man and his Dog. Anthony Richardson. This is the first book written about Jan Vaclav Bozdech and his dog Antis, who was the first non-British dog to be awarded the Dicken Medal — the animal equivalent of the VC. He was shot down over Germany, and whilst struggling to find his way back to the French line found an abandoned Alsatian puppy who was to share his life for the next 13 years. On arrival in England, Jan joined the RAF as an air-gunner firstly posted to Czech Fighter Squadron, later transferring to Czech Bomber Squadron where Antis took to accompanying the crew on their bombing missions. Jan returned, with Antis, to a post in the Czechoslovak Ministry of National Defence at the end of the war.

He had many jobs, firstly as a ringer on a cattle station owned by the Packer family, and later as a dingo trapper for the Parks and Wildlife Service.
