Set before and during the First World War, War Horse tells the journey of Joey, a bay Thoroughbred horse raised by British teenager Albert (Irvine), as he is bought by the British Army, leading him to encounter numerous individuals and owners throughout Europe, all the while experiencing the tragedies of the war happening around him.
View the official War Horse trailer.
All we can do is pass it on - the stories of the people who lived and died in WW1.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces Charity was the only British Military charity in existence at the outbreak of the war and we were able to help thousands of families while their men were away fighting at the front. SSAFA Surrey will remember those who served a hundred years ago and those who supported them, during this special evening.
