Well worth a slight detour when leaving Hyde Park towards Park Lane. All the forgotten animals who helped "win" the many wars of the past, especially WW1 where millions of horses and donkeys perished. So very sad and a tear jerker!

Strolling near Hyde Park I noticed a grouping of freestanding bronze animal sculptures. Out of curiosity, I crossed the street for closer look and was immediately moved by this well-done tribute to animals that have been killed in war during their service to mankind.

I've never seen anything quite like this, a memorial to animals that died in wars, and there have been so many. It's a great idea and animal rights activists will love it. Nice design. Sentimental.

Just drove by it and I was surprised to see it, but it is a nice tribute to the animals lost in war.

For all animal lovers - one of the greatest memorials standing. They served because they had no choice! My Grandfather's horse in the first wild war was called 'socks' - this is such a fitting tribute to all those animals that stood hoof and paw...More

This 2004 monument rises to the challenge of recognizing and commemorating the countless animals that have served with British armed forces. People who care about animals are bound to be moved by it. On the Park Lane side of Hyde Park, it is a carved...More

After going for a walk near my hotel I came across this memorial just down from Marble Arch. It is a lovely fitting tribute to all those animals used for various war efforts throughout the years against their will. Well worth a visit.
