Meet some truly unique members of the British Army as we celebrate the roles that our amazing animals play while in service.

Join us on the last day of the October half-term as we welcome some truly unique members of the armed forces. Learn all about the roles they play and how they help the Army complete vital missions.

Each session will include a short talk/demonstration plus the chance to ask questions and take photos. Please remember that these are live animals and therefore need to be treated with respect. All instructions from handlers must be followed.
