By Martin Zellig, Voxair Photojournalist.

When he worked as a dispatcher at 17  Wing some years ago, Chief Warrant Officer of Commissionaires Dean Smith sometimes received unusual requests from base members.

One request in particular stands out in his memory. It was a call from a women, the wife of CAF member, in the PMQs (Permanent Married Quarters).

"She wanted us to remove a dead rabbit from her lawn. “ recalled CWO Smith during and interview in his office in the Military Police Headquarters near the Wihuri Gate.
