(23 October 2014) Horsepower Museum Evening Talk

book cover
Title:"Theirs Not To Reason Why". On the outbreak of war in 1914 the Army had an organised Horse Reserve and Mobilisation Scheme; a completely integrated transport system using horses, motor mechanised vehicles and rail networks. As war progressed there were serious questions about the continuing supply of horses from both home and world markets, shortages of transport for moving them from the country of purchase and the growing submarine menace.
The talk will touch on all aspects of the supply, procurement and care of horses (with a special reference to cavalry horses) during the war, their use in combat and their disposal in 1918/1919.
