    Poor Tirpitz - what a shame she couldn't have lived her life out in peace after the excitement of a sea battle and swimming for her life after having to abandon ship - especially when she raised so much money for charity.

    Sadly, people were less sentimental about animals then.

    Aww she looks very cute in the first picture.

    How horrible that after all she went through and survived she ended up with her head on a plaque and her trotters on fork handles. Whatever happened to dignity after death?

    R.I.P. Tirpitz although I know it was a long time ago.

    Oh what a brave pig! I love stories like that.
    I also like to read about animals like Cher Ami, and those who received the Dickin Medal - Beauty is my fave just because she is a Wire Fox Terrier.
