Today Canada remembers those who lost their lives in war. We remember the memory of not only the millions of soldiers who died for our freedom, but also for the over eight million horses and mules lost during World War 1 and World War II.
Lest We Forget
In dreary, doubtful, waiting hours,
Before the brazen frenzy starts
The horses how him nobler powers;
O patient eyes, courageoud hearts!
Captain Julian Grenfell (1888 – 1915)
