Edwards' recruiting poster At the Front! "Every fit Briton should join our brave men at the front" is illustrated by a  showing team of horses, skittish as a shell bursts nearby, but nonetheless thundering ahead.  The front was exciting and dangerous for horses as well as men. Before motorized trucks took over a typical infantry division needed 5000 horses to move munitions, artillery and supplies. Provisions for horses put huge strains on logistics. 30x20 near mint, conservation backed.
