Vic The War Horse of Montrose - New display unveiled
Friday 16th July 2021.
It was a very special afternoon for us here at Montrose Air Station Heritage Centre as we proudly unveiled our new display.
Vic, The War Horse of Montrose, was requisitioned in 1914 by a local vet for his son, Captain Alexander Wallace of Arbroath. Together they saw action at The Somme, Passchendaele and Amiens. Vic was one of the few horses that survived the War and, thanks to Captain Wallace, came home. But, the story did not end there........ Come along to see Captain Wallace's original jacket and medals and discover the full story.
To mark the unveiling we welcomed Lieutenant Colonel Katy Badham-Thornhill REME, Lesley McKenzie - Ambassador of War Horse Memorial as well as members of the Wallace family in a live link with the USA. We very much look forward to sharing this incredible story for many years to come.
The unveiling was shown on STV News and reported by the Courier Newspaper click here to read
