We will be exhibiting at a World War 1 themed event in the close of  Salisbury Cathedral from June 8th to the 10th organized by SSAFA the charity that helps members of the armed forces and their families. There will be re-enactors, trenches and stands of military museums. The theme of our exhibits is "In Memoriam." This piece is  in memory of the suffering of horses and mules in their millions.
