In various wars since the advent of photography, in units from many nations, soldiers have adopted animals and kept them as mascots. Sometimes they are government issue, like horses, and other times they are strays that are looking for a meal. These include dogs, cats, goats, sheep, rabbits, birds, turtles, kangaroos, and more. Shown here is a young fox that took up with the Royal Air Force during World War I, and was said to enjoy flying. See a gallery of these mascots, and click on an image to get what story is known of them. -via History Buff
