P C Garrett of Burnham, Buckinghamshire rescues dog in well - 18 May 1935

There is a retriever living in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, who ought, by all the laws of chance, to be dead. He disappeared and at last was discovered at the bottom of a 200-feet well.

Nobody liked the thought of going down after him, and a policeman's job is to see that every, dog has his licence, not that every dog has his rescue; but P.C. Garrett undertook the task. The dog had been without food for a week. The constable was lowered by ropes, and brought the famished creature to the top.
