Photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1917 (c).
During the war, the British Army used thousands of horses and mules to move its guns, supplies, equipment and transport the wounded. It treated its animals with greater care than ever before. Around 80 per cent of the horses and mules treated by the Army Veterinary Corps were successfully returned to duty.
