Unveiling of the War Horse Memorial

June 2018
Berkshire, UK & Pozieres, FR

As Canadian Ambassador to Animals in War, David Clendining will be attending the official unveiling of the War Horse Memorial in Ascot as well the private Celebration dinner.

"The War Horse Memorial will be the first national memorial dedicated to the millions of UK, Allied and Commonwealth horses, donkeys and mules lost during The Great War. It will pay tribute to the nobility, courage, unyielding loyalty and immeasurable contribution these animals played in giving us the freedom of democracy we all enjoy today, and will signify the last time the horse would be used on a mass scale in modern warfare."


This historical event will be attended by members of the Royal Family, Ambassadors for Animals in War from members of the Commonwealth, war veterans as well as the general public. A private dinner will be held in celebration of the unveiling.
