    Default Jackie - the baboon who went to war in WW1.

    Jackie - infamous but totally forgotten!. Read the story here and you will be totally amazed and fascinated by this story. Jackie the baboon was not as well-known as “Nancy”, the Springbok mascot of the 4th Regiment ( South African Scottish) of the 1st South African Infantry Brigade of World War One. This story is most definitely one for the history books.

    But read the story at

    Enjoy!
