2014 marks the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. A new exhibition at Lymington’s St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Home Lad Home, tells the story of thousands of horses taken from civilian life and prepared for use by the military.
Running from the 1 March until 25 April, it showcases paintings by artists who recorded the work of the Remount Service, the Royal Army Veterinary Corps, the Cavalry and Artillery. The exhibition follows horses from domestic occupations to the Western Front, where they served with the cavalry, artillery and transport services.
