A special Remembrance Day parade will take place in Woodford Halse on Sunday.

The village’s traditional parade will be joined by several horses to mark the contribution made during the First World War by horses and other animals.

By 1917 Britain had more than a million horses and mules in service; 1,850,000 horses and mules were treated in veterinary hospitals, while 484,143 British horses, mules, camels and bullocks died from 1914-1918.
