The DVD tells the whole history of Warrior from his birth in an Isle of Wight field, to his amazing life as a famous war horse and how a combination of both the horse's extraordinary character and some unbelievable twists of fate, helped him survive a war which claimed the lives of 8 million horses. His owner was Jack Seely who for his services during the Boer War was appointed a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) (1900) and was Mentioned in Despatches. During the First World War, Seely was appointed a Companion of The Most Honourable Order of the Bath (CB) (1918), appointed a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (CMG) (1918), and was Mentioned in Despatches five times; Belgium appointed him a Commander of the Order of the Crown (Belgium), and France both appointed Seely a Commander of the Légion d'honneur and awarded him the Croix de guerre.
It's said that General Jack Seely led what was probably the last great cavalry charge in history at the Battle of Moreuil Wood in March 1918.
The DVD is presented by Jack Seely's grandson Brough Scott, a well-known broadcaster and journalist.
