Equitainment's Comments

I watched this documentary on the ABC during their April 2015 ANZAC Specials. I found it to be really interesting. The stories and actual footage show the true spirit of our beloved Walers and the true forgotten heros of the war. The conditions they endured and the courage they showed through such harrowing times is something we should never forget.

After all they went through they still didn't get to come home.

Product Overview

The Waler: Australia's Great War Horse takes us on an epic journey from the outback of Australia, across the vast Indian Ocean, to the pyramids of Egypt, the living hell that was Gallipoli and the unforgiving desert sands of the Middle East.

Over 130,000 Australian horses served in the Great War of 1914-18. Nearly 30,000 were engaged in the Middle East. Popularly known as 'Walers' it was in the desert sands that their legend was born. They carried their men to victory on the long road to Damascus, but at war's end they did not come home. This is the story of their colonial origins, their gallant service and their shameful fate.
