Based on Michael Morpurgo’s bestseller, this screening is part of Lyme Regis Town Council’s programme of events to promote the remembrance of the end of the Great War 100 years ago.
On the outbreak of the First World War, Albert’s beloved horse ‘Joey’ is sold to the Cavalry by his Father. After being sent to France, in a bid to survive, Joey has an unexpected journey across war torn Europe. Albert enlists in the British Army, and is wounded during the Battle of the Somme. Whilst recovering in Hospital, he learns of a Horse, found in no man’s land.
Ian Marshall of the British Legion will introduce the film with some words and clips of this year’s Great Pilgrimage 90. Earlier this year, the Royal British Legion recreated the Battlefields Pilgrimage of 1928 90 years on. Ian will show highlights of this year’s battlefields tour and parade to the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium.
