Very interesting, Nick. Was Winifred, Duchess of Portland's rest home for old horses at Welbeck? I know she persuaded the 6th Duke to build almshouses, funded by his racing winnings, and wonder if she also badgered him into paying for the old horses' home.

I would check the war diary, if you have not already. I have seen at least one regular RFA Bde diary which concluded the war Nov 1918 by noting how many of its original horses had survived, and that several were indeed South African veterans, I seem to remember. Strong bonds ..
