It is estimated that ten million fighting men, almost 800,000 of them British, died in the First World War.  Only a fraction of those who were killed have a known grave; thousands were simply blown into fragments or lie buried, their graves unknown, in foreign soil.  Alongside this tide of human cannon fodder was formed an equally large army of horses and mules - transport animals and cavalry mounts essential to the bloody business ahead.  While men cheerfully volunteered in their tens of thousands, similar numbers of horses were being stripped from farms, liveries, hunt stables and from private ownership, packed on to ships and sent overseas.  Over 8 million animals were thus engaged in the war worldwide.  On the Western Front over a million horses died.  Of the total in use by the British Army alone, themselves numbering almost a million, only around 60 000 are said to have been returned to the Britain at the war's end.
