Alternative Warhorse Story

Diaries and letters from Mrs Susan Fawcett-Gandy of Cwmgwdi near Brecon, revealed an alternative Warhorse story from WW1, with her father’s army mount Winkle who was with him for the whole of his Royal Artillery regiment’s campaign in Mesopotamia. And then Capt Alwyn Fawcett went on to train him up to win prestigious races in India after the end of the war. He also won the MC for swimming the Tigris River under fire, and dismissed the reward for his act of bravery as being undeserved.
