War Horses at the Museum

War Horses at the Museum is a World War 1 living history display of horse transport and supply taking place at The RLC Museum Worthy Down (SO212RG) 11-13 August 2022.

This free event is suitable for all the family and aims to highlight the horse transport and supply lines of the First World War. Horses Willy and Wiggy will be on show with handlers who can explain the life and work of a horse from 1914 onwards.

There will be displays of some of the horse-drawn vehicles in the Heritage Team’s collection, including a General Service Wagon, Horse Ambulance, Water Cart and a Mess Cart. The Horse-Drawn Heritage Team will be joined by Jarvis Browning, a Re-enactor, who displays a First World War forge along with the forging skills of the time.

The 3-day event will also have manned displays of veterinary equipment and skills, leather and saddlery work, First World War weapons and a Vickers Gun, a short length of working light rail to demonstrate resupply to the trenches.  The horse ambulance will demonstrate how injured horses were transported back to safety and treatment.

There will also be a display of wheelwright equipment and a Bell tent to show the life of a soldier in 1914.  A First World War Soyer stove will provide sausages and bacon for visitors to purchase along with tea or coffee during their visit.  The RLC Museum will be open to visitors who wish to continue to learn about logistics in the British Army and is free to enter.
