Animals and Curious

In the 18th century for visiting collections of exotic animals in the Tower of London had to pay a half penny, or to bring a cat or dog to feed the lions.

During the Second World War Polish Army of Anders found a bear cub in Iran, taking it to the allowance and called Wojtek. The soldiers are very loved bear, fed him and even drank beer for special services. Special Order Wojtek was enlisted in the 22nd Artillery Supply Company. The bear came with an army to Italy, where he distinguished himself at the battle of Monte Cassino, helping to unload the ammo and bringing ammunition to the guns. Picture of this process, the 22-th company has made its new logo.
