Don't gave an issue with diluting contributions to military charities by supporting service animals charities. Anybody who does has never benefited from their serviceI know it can be devisive and some regard the various non-RBL poppy appeals as diluting the funds the (human) veterans get, I've worked alongside defence animals (no, not REME) in Kosovo & Afghan. It's not easy to explain but I feel that as we've put our trust in them to look after us, we should do the same for them.
My Grandfather was a gamekeeper, he taught me to treat animals with compassion, dignity & respect in life and death, I like to think I'm living up to his wishes.
The First world war was a terrible environment for everyone, humans at least had some concept of why but how do you explain to dogs, horses, mules & pigeons why they're there?.
I know it's the Mirror and I think the figures quoted are for all nations, it does give some idea of what they went through beside us.
A 16 million-strong army of animals including mules, donkeys, cats and even camels was deployed - with the lives of 9m tragically cut shortwww.mirror.co.uk
Last year I think there was white, pink, rainbow, purple and probably a few others jumping on the poppy bandwagon using it for their own 'message' whilst appearing to be a subset of the 'real' poppy appeal. I've personally no problem with alternative fundraising as long as it is distanced from the original 'core' fundraising. A lot of charities also have quite high admin costs, which of course mean a reduction in useful funds. the ' Murphy’s Army Purple Poppy Campaign' is in my view, titled distinctly different enough to not be confused with the RBL fundraising.Don't gave an issue with diluting contributions to military charities by supporting service animals charities.
