Note- Apologies for the short notice for this one.......I thought it was worth reminding people of the Animal's War memorial which cost about £2 million I think....I attended its opening some years ago. Of course we all hate war, but I feel we should remember all its victims, not only the dead soldiers and civilians, but also the countless animals who've suffered and died as a result of all the wars throughout history. I feel we also should campaign against the use of animals in war, highlighted by the play and film "Warhorse" and I believe over a million horses died in the first World War. Animals are still being used in war e.g. dogs for detecting explosives in Afghanistan, some of you may know of the dog who died of (seemingly) a broken heart after seeing his handler killed.
