Here begins the moving true story of the real bear named Winnie adopted by soldiers during the First World War, and the inspiration behind the nation's best-loved bear, Winnie-the-Pooh.
In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a vet on his way to tend horses in the First World War, followed his heart and rescued a baby bear. He named her Winnie, and he took her to war. Harry Colebourn's real-life great-granddaughter tells the true story of a remarkable friendship and an even more remarkable journey - from the fields of Canada to an army base in England... and finally to London Zoo, where Winnie made another new friend - a boy named Christopher Robin Milne...
