The Long Riders Guild (thelongridersguild.com/stories/submarines) strikes again. Others may be familiar with the tale, but here it is. Raul Colon Wrote a short article that was originally in Equestrian Magazine. It relates the efforts of the British transporting horses from England to Gallipoli in support of operations there. I found the actual number of animals shipped this way unclear, but the fact that it was done at all leaves me shacking my head. Hopefully some one has access to the references, and can add to the article.
