GULF war veteran Allen Parton has welcomed a sixth labrador puppy to his assistance dog charity.
Hounds for Heroes, based in Petersfield, has a new recruit called Red 4.
The golden labrador retriever is named after Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging, who died when his Red Arrow Hawk jet, called Red 4, crashed near Bournemouth Airport shortly after last year’s August air festival.
As previously reported, the charity was set up by Mr Parton, from Clanfield, and will provide assistance dogs to injured servicemen and women.
One of the puppies has been named Yomper Ritchie after Royal Marine Richard Hollington, from Petersfield, who became the 300th serviceman to die in the Afghan conflict after being caught in a bomb blast in 2010.
The puppies are now undergoing a training regime to equip them with the skills they need to help people with everyday tasks.
