Remember the horses

The British Army used 1.2 million horses and mules in World War 1, it's believed that 484,000 died in battle, most never returned to the land of their birth with many of the survivors being sold off for meat or a life of hard labour.

Don't ever forget that.

"Wherever man has left his footprints in the long ascent from barbarism to civilization,
we find the hoofprint of a horse beside it."
~ John Trotwood Moore
