Police Dog Hogan 'Devon Brigade' by Arthur Studholme

David Knight - 18th Oct 2017

The new video for Police Dog Hogan's Devon Brigade is a real family affair – appropriately so, considering story behind the song.

It revolves around the life of Paul Studholme, great uncle of PDF singer (and Blink Films MD) James Studholme, who was killed at the third battle of Ypres, better known as Paschendaele, at the age of 19 on 4th October 1917.

While James performs the song, the video was directed by Arthur Studholme, to honour the memory of 2nd Lt Paul. F. W. Studholme of the Devonshire Regiment, and to mark the 100th anniversary of his death. This film features Rafe Studholme playing his Great Great Uncle, and shows Paul on his last few days of leave before rejoining his unit for the final time. 

Paul was only 19 when he was killed, the same age Rafe is now. They also both shared a strikingly similar upbringing in Devon, the backdrop for this beautiful film, that was edited by Sam Sneade.
