This Last Post Service will honour the contribution of all animals who have given their loyalty and their lives, serving alongside their human comrades. Dogs, horses, donkeys, camels and pigeons are just some of the animals that have served, and in honour of the National Day for War Animals on 24 February, we will remember them.

A variety of service animals and their handlers will be in attendance, and the service will conclude with the release of homing pigeons.

Visitors and their (leashed) four-legged friends are welcome to join us on the forecourt.

Shrine Representative:

  • Shrine Governor Captain Tyson Taylor
