Commemorating Animals in War
Posted 5 October 2006
In times of conflict, animals have been used as messengers, for detection, scouting and rescue, as beasts of burden and on the frontline. They have been used for companionship in the trenches and continue to be subjected to warfare experiments in laboratories. And yet they are rarely mentioned in remembrance ceremonies.
To commemorate all those animals who have died as a result of human conflicts, Animal Aid has launched a purple poppy. The poppies are £1 each and can be ordered from the Animal Aid office. Discounts are available for bulk orders.
