Description  
This sketch by Munnings depicts the horse Cinderella and Warrior who was foaled in the spring of 1908 on the Isle of Wight. Munnings never saw Cinderella therfore this sketch is from his imagination. Warrior went to war on the Western Front with Winston Churchill’s great friend, General Jack Seely, in 1914. There he cheated death thousands of times and survived all imaginable disasters. Warrior was active in many famous battles including those at the Somme and Ypres and he came back four years later. Eight million other horses and mules did not return. Returning with Jack Seely to his native Isle of Wight in 1918 they continued to ride together, Warrior lived on until the grand old age of 33, even winning a point to point four years to the day that he had led the charge at Moreuil Wood. Seely and Warrior are one of the most remarkable teams in history. Warrior died in 1941 and the headline of his obituary in the Evening Standard read ‘Horse the Germans Could Not Kill’.
