The special bond between the men and Waler mounts of the Australian Light Horse holds a unique place in Australian folklore. This majestic Light Horse snow globe remembers the unwavering trust and reliance our Troopers placed in their mounts during the Great War of 1914-1918. But it also symbolises a respect for all war-animals – great and small – that have served alongside our armed forces.
The unison of the purple war animals poppy and the traditional red poppy is part of a worldwide movement to help us understand the role of animals in war, and the bond of respect and trust our servicemen and women continue to place in them. Honour this bond in remembering service.
