Reflective and grateful - Explosive Detection Dog
Watercolour of Explosive Detection Dog, who served in Afghanistan. One of 10 watercolours by HSC student and artist, Rachael Michelle Potter, in a series entitled 'Unsung Heroes- Afghanistan' of which nine are in the Memorial's collection. The dog is honoured by the background image of a soldier in reflection of fallen comrades. The dog’s expression evokes sympathy for the cost of combat, yet his eyes reflect clarity of purpose.
