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 with the men and women who were conscripted. How great our respect - we owe them everything we have today. May they roam in pastures new with a gentle sun on their backs ❤️ a MUST see!

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 wall of Portland stone, with sculptures of two mules, a horse and a dog in bronze.

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.

As an animal lover, I made it a point to wander past here and snap a few years photos on my recent trip to London. It really is a touching memorial to all of the animals who have served over the years.

This war memorial is a tribute to the countless animals that have served and died under British military command throughout history. The memorial is located on Park Lane, at the edge of Hyde Park. A moving tribute, one of the two inscription reads, "They had no choice."
