Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

Our Winter Animal Exposition

Since we have been operating this blog, I've discovered that animal articles and anything from our "Rat Catchers" series magically give a big boost to readership.  So here are a few of our favorite photos from the files.  We had a "War Horse" feature a while back, so there are no equines in this series.

Bonneau and His Friend John McCrae

Mule Ration Train in Vosges Mountains

Dog-Drawn Machine Gun, 1914

Beagle Therapists at a British Hospital

The Chap on the Right Reminds Me of Francis the Talking Mule

Camel Ambulance Train in the Middle East

HMS Glasgow (Formerly SMS Dresden) Mascot "Tirpitz",
Captured at the Battle of the Falklands

Tirpitz Was Later Auctioned-Off to Raise Funds
His Stuffed Head Is Part of the Imperial War Museum and Can Be Viewed HERE
