EDITORS COMMENTS
Goodbye Old Man: A Heartbreaking Moment of Love and Loss in WWI This poignant print captures a truly heartbreaking moment from World War One, circa 1916. In the midst of the chaos and devastation of war, a soldier is seen giving his dying horse a tender parting kiss. The bond between man and animal is evident in this emotional scene, as the soldier bids farewell to his loyal companion. The image evokes feelings of love, sadness, grief, and suffering - emotions that were all too common during wartime. The soldier's patriotic duty may have called him to battle, but it is clear that his heart remains with his faithful horse until the very end. As we reflect on this historical photograph, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by both humans and animals during times of conflict. The Blue Cross Fund provided support for military animals like this brave horse who served alongside their human counterparts. This print serves as a powerful reminder of the great love that exists between man and animal, even in the face of tragedy. It is a testament to the enduring bond shared between soldiers and their faithful companions throughout history.
