In a first for War Horse Memorial and in support of their chosen charities, we are honoured to present this exclusive commemorative sheetlet collection which has been produced by Isle of Man Post Office.

'Elegy to the War Horse’  features four stamps from the Island’s WW1 collections and four stamp labels and is a beautiful collection reflecting the emotion of the horse in war. Embedded is a unique and free Zap app, leading you to a moving 2 minute film. Also featured is a bespoke wrap and CD, Elegy to the War Horse, a haunting and enigmatic tribute to war horses everywhere. 

Inside the bespoke wrap you will find a CD/EP, Elegy to the War Horse, written by Major Craig Hallatt, former Director of Music of The Household Cavalry. The composition is performed by The Guards' Chapel Orchestra, and pays tribute to the millions of British, Allied and Commonwealth horses, mules and donkeys lost during World War I, including 100 animals requisitioned from the Isle of Man. Two horses, Imp and Molly survived and returned to the Island to peacefully live out their days.

The CD/EP also features tracks by The Soldiers and The Treorchy Male Choir, and marks the unveiling of Poppy, the national War Horse Memorial in Ascot two years ago by the nation’s Guides and Brownies who named her.
