I found a rescue pig (literally) on HMS Glasgow, while looking for something else.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Glasgow_%281909%29Here he is. A fine fellow. Sadly, his rescue is not recorded on the day of the sinking of the Dresden. http://s3.amazonaws.com/oldweather/ADM53-42828/ADM%2053-42828-169_1.jpg
Do you mean no one saved his bacon? ( )
http://royalnavymemories.co.uk/tirpitz-the-pig/:Tirpitz was a pig captured from the German Navy after a naval skirmish following the Battle of the Falkland Islands in 1914. He subsequently became the mascot of the cruiser HMS ?Glasgow?.
..., a number of U-boats had mascots some of which went on patrols- mostly cats and dogs. One U-boat even had an aquarium. You might enjoy looking at this U-953 website U-953 had both the dog Rin-Tin-Tina and a cat named Peter as mascots. Best regards, Jerry
