Each Division of the army had a certain amount of transport under its command,
known as the Divisional Train.
It was the "workhorse" of the division in terms of carrying stores and supplies.
It mainly composed of 26 officers and 402 men of other ranks,
who looked after 378 horses, 17 carts, 125 wagons and 30 bicycles.
Therefore although the British army was probably the most mechanized of all the Great War armies,
it still relied heavily on horse power for the transportation of supplies,
guns, ammunition and men.
Because roads were so completely broken up by alternate frost, snow and rain,
the only way to get ammunition to the forward batteries was to carry it up in panniers slung on horses and mules.
These "warhorses"shifted millions of tons of rations and ammunition up to the front line.
The statistics show that 900,000 British men died in France between 1914,
and 1918, which was 1 in 8 of those who went to war.
A million horses were also sent overseas, only 62,000 were to return.
