A celebration of the forgotten heroes of war, the animals that have served alongside Australian forces.

Here are twenty-one fascinating stories about the forgotten heroes of war: animals who have served beside Australian forces.

These are all animals that dazzle with their courage and loyalty – or sometimes just by being lovable. Whether it's a rooster guarding his battalion during the First World War or a mine-detecting dolphin in Iraq, they make the difficult lives of soldiers so much more bearable.
