This spaniel is said to have saved a thousand lives. He is a best friend in dog’s clothing. An RAF police dog with his mossy feet firmly on the ground. 

A brave dog who has served his colleagues and his country with unstinting devotion. And now with a little help, he's published a book.



The story of the partnership of Buster and Will describes how each came to save the other’s life. This is a relationship that produced some heroic feats in the dust and desert heat of Afghanistan and Iraq. Buster, uniquely, has served five tours of duty - more than any other military dog. 

His relationship with his handler, RAF Police Flight Sergeant Michael "Will" Barrow is a very special one, with each having saved the other's life. Kate Gerbeau caught up with them in the Forces TV studio, and asked what makes Buster such a special dog.
