The Horse Drawn War
New temporary exhibition runs until 31st August
On the outbreak of the 1st World War in August 1914, the land on which the REME Garrison is currently based was the site of an Army Remount Depot. Run by the Army Service Corps, the purpose of the Depot was to house and prepare horses for transport to the Front and other war areas.
In 2014, REME Museum of Technology will mark the centenary of the beginning of the 1st World War. This special exhibition looks at the journey of the horses from purchase and the Remount Depot, to their transport and role on the Front. The exhibition will run to the 31 August 2014.
