For those in the UK- Channel 5 at 8.00 this evening. I've only just noticed it myself. Archive footage and testimony tell the poignant stories of some of the million British horses that served in WW1.

A number of us retired Marines had been passing around the video of Sgt. Reckless (War horse). Not WWI but none the less inspiring. Link attached.

Yes, I watched it (had to record One man and His Dog) :grin:

 

A very moving account....I found tears rolling down my cheeks in the last 5 minutes..where those beautiful Black Horses, who survived the Horror...pulled the gun carriage, with the body of the unknown soldier to Westminster Abbey.....very moving indeed

During WW1 So the story goes it was my Grandfather's job to take ammunition to the front with a horse. Unfortunately they took a shell and his horse was killed and he was severely wounded and repatriated home. He would never talk of his experiences.
