Medal for a Mule

Issue Number: 5660

Equus asinus — that’s the proper Latin name for the weirdest weapon used by the Allies in the Second World War. It sounds unusual, but in fact it’s only the name for a common pack-mule. And the story of how one particular mule, a Commando squad, and a hotch-potch of assorted Greeks went into battle against the deadly Nazi war machine makes mighty exciting reading.
