Les animaux en temps de guerre

This memorial includes three plaques.
plaque 1:

For centuries, animals have demonstrated an enduring partnership with humans during times of war. They have served as means of transportation, beast of burden, messengers, protectors and mascots. Still today, dogs use their unique, sharply tuned instincts to detect mine clusters, and conduct search and rescue operations. We remember the contribution and sacrifice of all animals.
Pendant des siècles, les animaux ont été les partenaires indéfectibles des humains en temps de guerre. Ils ont servi de moyens de transport de bêtes de somme, de messagers, de protecteurs,et de mascottes. Encore de nous jours, les chiens se servant de leur instinct exceptionnel pour détecter les champs de mines et mener des opérations de recherche et de sauvetage. Nous saluons la contribution et le sacrifice de tous les animaux.
plaque 2:
Relentless shelling in the First World War (1914-1918) left huge craters of mud and sewage. Horses and mules could best navigate these difficulties conditions to supply the front and evacuate the wounded.
Les bombardements intensifs de la Première Guerre mondiale (1914-1918) ont laissé d'immense cratères de boue et d'eaux usées . Les chevaux et les mules pouvaient mieux affronter ces conditions difficiles pour approvisionner le front et évacuer les blessés.

plaque 3:
Horses carried soldiers and pulled gun carriages, supply wagons and ambulances. Many paid the ultimate price and their loss was mourned by those they served.
Les chevaux ont transporté les soldats et tiré les affûte de canon, les chariots d'approvisionnement et les ambulances. Beaucoup ont péri et ceux qu'ils servaient ont pleuré leur perte.
