Aspirations of humanity in times of warAt the most basic level animals and birds provided interest to fill the blank hours in the trenches and billets; bird watching for instance was probably the most popular single hobby among officers But perhaps importantly the ability of nature to endure despite the bullets and blood gave men a psychological spiritual even religious uplift Animals and plants were also reminders of home Aside from bird watching they went fishi.
