Imperial War Museum.
Poppy our War Horse dedicated to the millions of UK, Allied and Commonwealth horses, mules and donkeys who gave service and sacrifice in the First World War, has been officially recognised by the Imperial War Museum and is now registered in their monuments archive Ref Number 82382.
The War Memorials Register is a comprehensive national archive of UK memorials and the names of the individuals they commemorate. It includes civilians, members of the armed forces and animals from all wars and those who died in service.
We are delighted to announce that Arthur our companion War Horse in Little London, Hampshire has also been added to the list under Ref 82401.
With your help we hope to identify many other local equine memorials over the coming months and register these as part of the IWM’s changing face of commemoration.
