Hunt to discover more about the real war horses

New television documentary needs you.

A search has been launched to find true stories of the real war horses of the First World War for a new television documentary.

Testimony Films is producing a new documentary for Channel Four, which will explore the role of war horses during the war to coincide with Steven Spielberg’s latest film War Horse.

During the war nearly half a million privately owned horses from across the country were requisitioned by the Government and sent to the front line.

Anyone with any personal knowledge or whose families had horses requisitioned can call Devika on (0117) 9258589, email or write to War Horses Appeal, Testimony Films, 12 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RH.
