Who knew our soldiers had such a variety of animal companions? Apart from the beasts of burden that one might expect, such as horses, mules, donkeys and camels, many battalions had mascots as well: kangaroos, monkeys, dogs, chickens, tortoises, cats... all of whom provided comfort, companionship and a welcome distraction from the war. Anzac animals presents the true stories of mascots and working animals during the First and Second World Wars.
