ANIMAL REMEMBRANCE SERVICE. Brookes Gate, off Park Lane, Marble Arch tube.

At 10.30am, onRemembrance Sunday morning, 10th of November, the annual

Act of Remembrance For Animals In War

takes place at The Animals War Memorial', Brookes Gate, off Park Lane, London (nearest Tube: Marble Arch)

The event will include the ‘forgotten animal conscripts of war’ in our nation’s 2 minutes silence. Any who wish to lay flowers or wreaths are most welcome; as well as to have them blessed!

A ‘Short Address’ Will Be Given & Worship will be led by Senior Anglican cleric: Pastor James Thompson from North Wales, known to so many as ‘the Animal Padre'.

 ‘Everyone is Most Welcome!’

Never forget: "Whilst there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields" - Tolstoy 

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.
