Summary: An alsatian, given unconditionally by the family whose home it has outgrown, is trained as an RAF police dog.
Description: The short film opens with Peter, the dog's first schoolboy owner, sending 'Rex' birthday greetings; the message arrives (RAF training centre, Netheravon) as Rex is completing his training. A flashback shows the dog's arrival, initial hostility, and meeting with handler, and hints at his instruction. Rex passes the final test (halting "an armed intruder") and appears in a display at Peter's home town. Closing image shows Rex on guard by a Valiant bomber, "helping safeguard the nation's security."
