Found: Photo of Stuka the Scottish Terrier who was the Memphis Belle mascot


For some reason, the Scottie News was unable to locate a picture of Stuka four years ago. Now, however, the Memphis Belle’s canine mascot is all over the internet. According to the chat board on which we found this particular Stuka photo, “Stuka flew a few missions in the Belle, and then went on the warbond tour with them. Jim Verenis said that Stuka stayed with them in some of the finest hotels, and ate steak for dinner every night. He lived out his years at Jim’s home.”

Since it took us this long to locate the photo, we figured you deserve a little extra.
Here’s Lassie (no, not the Lassie), another Scottish Terrier who was a squadron dog. You can find out far more about her by following the link.
