Join us for an act of remembrance here at Oak Tree.
Sun, 14th November 2021 (2.30pm)
At 2.30pm on Sunday 14th November we are holding an act of remembrance here at Oak Tree, to remember all of the animals who have fallen as casualties of war.
Many millions of animals have been enlisted by British, Commonwealth and Allied forces to serve in war, with countless numbers of these animals losing their lives. During the First World War, eight million horses were killed, with 7,000 being killed in just one day during the 1916 Battle of Verdun in France.
Dogs were, and still are, used extensively in war for a number of purposes, with many other animal species also being used in war, including elephants, mules, donkeys, cats, camels, canaries, carrier pigeons and glow worms.
You are more than welcome to join us for this act of remembrance.
