“She’s beautiful; black as the night and bright like the stars.  She’ll carry me bravely into battle, I’m sure..”

Captain Guy Powles gently led the young horse from the grassy fields of New Zealand to join hundreds of horses on troopships bound for a Great War in a land far, far away.

Would Bess the brave war horse ever return to the lush fields of home?
