A new copperplate etching based on the horses and mules who worked as pack animals in WWI. The horses which had largely been recruited for the cavalry found themselves being converted into a means of transportation after opposing sides became entrenched, carrying or pulling anything and everything from ammunition to ambulances. Gas masks were introduced for animals soon after the gas attacks began. This horse is shown carrying a Vickers Maxim 303. Machine gun and a Lee Enfield rifle

This will be on show, alongside other works, in Marlborough, Wiltshire, from 7th November.
