We will remember them...
6th November 2022
Instead of holding our usual Act of Remembrance onsite, we would like to invite our supporters to join with their local communities to remember animals lost through war at their local Remembrance services.
Remembrance services will be held at...
- 10.00am at St Paul's, Home Eden
- 10.50am at Holy Trinity, Wetheral
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.
So many have lost their lives at war, we will remember them.
