"Royal" - The SSR Mascott from Moosomin - a St. Bernard

Do you know the story of "Royal"?

Apparently, as legend says, the SSR had a mascott from Moosomin, Saskatchewan, named "Royal". Here is a picture of his harness. The note that is with it says that it was worn by a St. Bernard named “Royal” that transferred from the RCR to the SSR in 194? (that is how the date is written).

We would like to know more about this story. If you are a veteran who can remember Royal, or have a picture of him, please contact us.
