When I last photographed this memorial the plaques were covered with snow. There are some interesting details here. In the pavement there are horseshoe prints and dog foot prints leading up to the dog. The information on the plaques should be self explanatory.
|Relentless shelling in the First World War (1914-1918) left huge craters of mud and sewage. Horses and mules could best navigate these difficult conditions to supply the front and evacuate the wounded.|
|Horses carried soldiers, and pulled gun carriages, supply wagons and ambulances. Many paid the ultimate price and their loss was mourned by those they served.|
