Date of Award: awarded posthumously on 2 September 2014
Warrior and General Jack Seely commanded three regiments of the Canadian Cavalry, and together the pair led the charge at some of the bloodiest and most infamous battles of WWI.
Such was Warrior's bravery that he was dubbed "the horse the Germans couldn't kill".
Warrior was subjected to machine gun attacks by air, survived falling shells at the Battle of the Somme, was buried under debris and got stuck in mud at Passchendaele, and was trapped under the burning beams of his stables not once, but twice.
Against all the odds, Warrior survived and was posthumously awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal on behalf of all animals that served in the Great War.
