Global: Pets, food or both? One photograph, two soldiers, but a contrasting story. The man holding the chicken looks a lot happier about being photographed than his slightly larger, grimacing colleague with the rabbit. The small pot, which has been leaned up against the makeshift chicken coop, appears to have a number of eggs in it. The fate of the rabbit could be open for discussion for two reasons. Firstly, the larger pot appears to be full of boiling water, and the soldier holding the rabbit looks a lot better fed than his sergeant holding the chicken. Having said that, the sergeant could also be smiling because he knows what he will be having for his tea that evening.

Under the shadow of the Egyptian pyramids, some Australian units, such as the 9th and 10th Battalions, Australian Infantry, at the Mena camp in Egypt, in December 1914, took their animal mascots with them. Fortunately for the kangaroo, there wouldn???t have been too much difference between the heat of an Egyptian desert and the dry and arid conditions it was used to back home.

Global: One of the more unusual dog stories from the First World War was about a Boston bull terrier named Sergeant Stubby. He was the only dog to be promoted to the rank of sergeant as a result of his exploits in combat, and he was also highly decorated for his feats. Sergeant Stubby was an American dog, which could cause one to question if such an accolade would have been bestowed upon him if he had been from any other country. Stubby had started out as the mascot to the 102nd Infantry, 26th Yankee Division, and ended up becoming a fully-fledged combat dog. Whilst in front-line trenches he was injured in a German gas attack, which resulted in him being acutely sensitive to gas. This new found gift allowed Stubby to warn soldiers of an impending gas attack, which he did by running about and barking. They soon understood what he was telling them. He certainly was a very special dog and located many wounded American soldiers who had been left in no man???s land. During his time on the Western Front he was wounded twice.REMARKABLE vintage photos show the animals which served during the First World War ??" including the bear which went on to inspire a beloved series of children???s books.

Global: One of the strangest photographs on the subject of animals at war is that of a pilot from the 32nd Squadron Royal Air Force and a fox. The photograph was taken on 5 May 1918, at the Humieres Aerodrome, St Pol, France. The animal appears quite at ease and happy, and has clearly become a pet to either the pilot in the photograph or the pilot???s squadron, and can be clearly seen wearing a collar and a lead, which is held by the pilot as the fox looks out from the rear of the aircraft???s cockpit.
