call in the cavalry!

the horses that went over to fight during the wars had their names shortened to ‘walers’. Sadly, once the war was winding down, the good old walers were going to be sold locally to whoever would buy them. MOst soldiers went for a ride on their trusty mounts, returning with tack to report their horses had ‘broken his leg in a hole’ and had to be shot.
Out of all the horses, only one returned safe and sound. ratehr sad
