Footnotes

  • These four horses appear in the great battle charge as well as in the army recruiting scene near the beginning of the play. The outbreak of the First World War led to a surge in demand for horses. The army travelled around the country buying horses from farms and stables. This compromised the livelihoods of many owners, however they sold the horses for the greater good and defense of the nation.
