Blue Cross War Horse collection

Welcome to the Blue Cross special edition War Horse collection. For the first time ever we’ve made our exclusive historic archive available to the public online. Blue Cross has been helping animals since 1897 and we cared for sick and injured horses during World War One. Here you can explore our images, memorabilia and stories from the front line…

Take a look at our audio slideshows to find out more about the role of horses during World War One and discover a real-life story of a young boy and his horse on the battlefields of France. Step back in time and explore our historic gallery of photographs, books, logos and paintings from World War One or flick through the pages of our iconic book Blue Cross at War to learn more about our role in helping animals on the front line.
