Due to the latest guidance from the NI Executive, our museums will remain closed for a planned 6 week period from the 23 December. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to our museums when it is safe to do so and we would like to thank the public for their continued support and patience.
First World War image of British soldiers marching with pack horses. They are carrying spades and stakes and may well be either a ‘pioneer’ or labour corps’ unit. The presence of pack horses is a reminder of the huge animal fatality rate in a war, among other roles for horses, gun carriages had to be drawn by several strong animals.
