Animals in War Memorial Service

It was an incredible service yesterday at the Animals in War Memorial Service, Park Lane, London. Well-attended with animal-lovers wearing their purple poppies.

A special thank you to James Thompson (pictured), the Animal Padre, for travelling from North Wales again to hold this unique service. I will write a full report in my November round-up.
