When you think of the word war you think of people who have given there lives in order to save someone else’s. but did you know that animals also went to the war as well…..
They were mainly used for communication because they didn’t have much and the soldiers couldn’t walk a cross the field to tell someone something without getting killed. So they trained animals to take the messages a cross the field quickly and safe. they would normally use animals like:
Dog were used more to smell if there were bombs in the area, but were also used to send messages a cross to one an other. Birds and especially pigeons, they would attach a little plastic cylinder on there feet and put the message inside.
So remember the next time you think of the word war just remember that it wasn’t just people that gave there lives animals did to.
