Remembrance Sunday is a time to remember the service and sacrifice of those members of the armed forces who risked and gave their lives in order that we may enjoy our freedoms. This of course means we pay our respects the the courageous men and women who served Britain and the commonwealth. Many of these brave armed service personnel will have also been ably assisted by animals.
Our minds naturally think of pigeons, dogs and horses when it comes to animals being used in war time, but did you know the list of animals also stretches to Elephants, camels, oxen, bullocks, cats, canaries, even glow worms ?
The Animals in War Memorial is a beautiful dedication to the service that animals have played in combat to protect our freedoms. A link to the site with visitor information can be found here.
As a mark of respect and in order to help those veterans finding the cost of living crisis especially hard, I have decided to donate £1 of every full price lesson between October 27th and November 13th to the Royal British Legion.
I recently bought my 3 doggies these lovely poppy collar pendants.
