Killed in Action, Afghanistan, 2007
Razz was killed in action during a route clearance task in Oruzgan Province in 2007. Razz and his handler encountered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). The bomb detonated on discovery, resulting in the slight wounding of the handler and the death of the dog.
Improvised devices placed on public roads are designed to kill and maim people. Razz helped identify where the bomb was placed and sadly paid the ultimate price for his actions.
Razz was a veteran of the 2002 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting and the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games. He joined the Defence Force after beginning his career with Customs.
