Warrior. Died 22nd August 1935 aged 26 years. This white gelding, 16 hands, served with the Old Contemptibles in France from 1914 to the end of the war. He took part in the retreat from Mons and was wounded in the advance on the Aisne. After the shrapnel had been extracted, he returned to duty and did service in several further actions until the Armistice. He was purchased by Miss Hilda Moore and presented by her to the town. He at once assumed the chief position in the Police stud and became honored and loved by all, not only for his famous war record, but also for his efficiency, intelligence, gentleness and noble character.
