TIGGY the Jack Russell is to become star of the show at an ‘Animal Magic’ event onboard historic HMS Victory.

The five-year-old, who lives in Titchfield with owners George and Jo Hudson, will help Fiona Harvey, the National Museum of the Royal Navy’s learning officer, explain the history of dogs at sea, famous dog mascots of ships and other navy animal tales.

Owner George, a former submariner, said: ‘She is very excited to have been asked to help.

‘She loves people and being made a fuss of and will roll over on command.

‘Tiggy is quite the starlet and does love to dress up if it gets her attention.’

Tiggy will even have her own uniform.

She will be onboard HMS Victory from 11am to 1pm 2pm to 4pm on August 23.
