A Medal For A War Horse

The theatrical homage to a War Horse has made me aware of the role horses played in World War I. This is why I find it interesting that only now one of those British world war horses has been awarded with a medal for bravery. No joke. Yesterday the honorary PDSA Dickin medal was presented posthumously to war horse Warrior, dubbed "the horse the Germans could not kill" at a special ceremony in London, as a recognition of the gallantry showed by all the animals that served on the frontline during the conflict. No doubt that would not have happened without that marvellous and unforgettable West End show.
