Horses in WWI and WWII


Members of the cavalry resting their horses by the side of the road in France. The men are milling around in front of their horses. They all look fairly glad to be having a rest. The line of dapple grey horses standing side by side can be seen stretching into the distance. They are on a long narrow road that winds its way through farmland. In the distance there is a house and a row of trees. Whilst many images were deliberately taken as propaganda some like this simply document the experiences of war.
