Animals in war

Animals in war

This post is also available in: ja日本語 (Japanese)

Human beings have caused many wars. Humans are not the only ones who have been put into battle.
A typical horse is used for cavalry, but many animals were involved.
This time I tried to coloring animals in the war.

cavalry

Cavalry existed as the most important unit in any age.  This picture is the cavalry of Lithuania.

Dog

Dog is disciplined and loyalty is high, so there were many duties able to be active. This dog seems to be a long-term care dog. Dogs have investigated injured soldiers and delivered medical supplies to the front line.

In the period when communication technology has not developed as much as now,  communication use carrier pigeon was the fastest means of communication.

Camel

Even now camels are being used for logistics in the desert area.

This is a picture of a British soldier in Bangladesh. It seems that it was filmed in 1918, so it was around the time of the First World War.

Also, because it is higher mobility than horses, it has not been used on the front line much, but camel cavalry also exists.

Bear

There is a famous bear soldier called Voytek. Voyotek is a bear who has served in the army of Poland. Voitek was taken over by the army during the baby and was active as an army’s mascot. A corporate class is given so that we can act as a unit. Voitek belongs to the military during World War II and engaged in ammunition transportation work during the battle of Monte Cassino.

Cat

I have never heard of the fact that a cat played an active part in the battlefield, but as a symbol of a unit there may be a few healing in the battlefield. Also, it seems that he kept being kept in rats as it was kept in the photo with the entrance and the kept in the ship.
