War Horses Week: Walking Wounded

I raided Pathé’s glorious YouTube channel for some footage of very weary, injured horses being assessed at a Blue Cross hospital during the 1914–1918 war. There’s no information about what country this might be, but the hats of some of the assistants look a bit French. If you have more of a clue than I do, please chip in. Note the ladies assisting the vet.
