Join Lucy Betteridge-Dyson as she explores the vital role that horses and mules played in the British Army’s efforts during the First World War.

The First World War is a conflict closely associated with technological development and the industrialisation of warfare. However, horses and mules continued to play an important role in military operations.

In this talk, Lucy Betteridge-Dyson will consider the equine experience during the First World War and explore the many ways in which horses and mules were used by the British Army. She will consider the vital role that these animals played in supporting military operations and delivering victory.

Lucy Betteridge-Dyson is a military historian and postgraduate student at the University of Wolverhampton. A battlefield guide and horse lover, her current research focuses on the use of equines in 20th-century warfare and the story of the real war horse in the First World War. She has worked with the BBC, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the Royal British Legion.
