Welcome to The Path of the Remembered,

A crowd-sourced tribute to thousands of people connected to the Battle of the Somme

Mary Tabbron for To all the animals that lost their lives in the Somme

Dedicated to To All The Animals That Lost Their Lives In The Somme

by Mary Tabbron

16 Million animals were used in W.W.1 including horses, dogs, mules and carrier pigeons. 9 million lost their lives in the war.
The collar belongs to a French dog called Pacha who died at the Somme.
I do not know what kind of dog Pacha was but I have represented the dog as a Maremma Sheepdog as they are renown for their strength, bravery and intelligence.
