Ridiculous. It was the dog's name and what it responded to. If my grandad had a name people didn't suddenly approve of, would they change his headstone too? Cunts

I had no idea the dogs name was nigger and before the RAF announced they had removed the headstone,nor did anybody else.

However the story was not without it's merits. We learn that the "dog" black labrador, "was a "drinking buddy" for squadron members and would consume litres of beer before passing out."

And in the next sentence we learn "He was hit by a car and killed on 16 May 1943, but his death was kept from the airmen as it was feared they might see it as a bad omen."

...am I the only person who think I might guess the reason he was hit by a car...

RAF Scampton's been/being sold and will close in 2022. Chances are the memorial site will be paved over for a car park or flats or something and a new plaque installed somewhere discreet, which you can guarantee wouldn't have had the dog's original name on anyway. All that's happened now is that they have drawn attention to it and are now facing a backlash. If they had just left it alone for 2 more years everything could have been done on the qt and pretty much no one would have been any the wiser.

History , no matter how hollywoodyfied , used to be sacred .

A magnificent portrayal of the animal himself by , date I say it , a real black Labrador.


And he won’t go away either . Expect a visit soonish BLM. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.dail ... orial.html
