    Default Horses Remembered

    Just a very short one here of a Horse that was made the Soldiers in Remembrance of their Services during the War.
    Sent to me by John in Oz that was small but i managed to enlarge it.
    Very good work with the formations and a credit to them all.
    Thanks
    Cheers

    Doc: Featured for remembrance five years ago as Never Forget: Incredible tribute to the 8 MILLION hero horses killed in First World War
    the picture shows the poignant tribute hundreds of First World War soldiers paid to the horses who died fighting by their side. Last
    year a War horse statue was unveiled at National Memorial Arboretum. 2018 saw a memorial to war horses that lost their lives
    during World War One unveiled near Ascot racecourse. The bronze sculpture, named Poppy, has its head bowed with a string of
    barbed wire around its hooves. There is a Horse Memorial in a provincial heritage site in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape
    province of South Africa, in memory of the horses that served and died during the Second Boer War, where Britain brought a
    large number of horses to South Africa.

    My Grandad would've loved that, being in charge of horses in the First world war. Thanks for that.

    The saddest bit about that Victoria was that the ones sent overseas never came back.
    Shot on the beach by their handlers.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Terrible thing, but I believe one horse did get smuggled back by his rider. Not sure how he did it but good on him. Must've broken those guys hearts as these horses were their best buddies and gave everything they had for their riders.

    It did happen, not often, possibly creating the legend which has inspired the writing and film War Horse.
