Flag Day for Wounded Horses

Scottish horse riding through Cople, 1914 [Z68/1]

Tuesday 14th September 1915: A flag day is being held in Leighton Buzzard today in aid of the R.S.P.C.A. fund for wounded horses. The committee is asking the public to “Buy a flag and help a horse”. It is said that 85% of horses treated in R.S.P.C.A. hospitals will be cured. Those who contribute can therefore do so in the assurance that their money will be well spent both in preventing suffering and in helping our forces. This is the only fund of its type recognised by the Army Council and carries out work of national importance.
