Remember the horses that fell with the men

I had expected to blip something form London this morning, probably a picture from Westminster Bridge, which I walked over on my way to a meeting of the Joint Ministerial Committee.

However in Whitehall, just opposite the Cenptaph, I noticed this . Apparently a million horses took part in the First World War, but only 60,000 survived. The more I read on line as I made my way back to Edinburgh after the meeting, the more I became fascinated - and the more moving the story became. I now will make a point of trying to see “Warhorse”.

I found and still find the wreath itself unutterably sad and haunting. It stayed with me all day, up to , and including, my long journey home (on the Rest and Be Thankful diversion) after appearing on BBC Question Time in the Scottish Parliament.
