Wojtek the bear soft toy

This cuddly plush toy of Wojtek, one of the Second World War's most notable animal heroes, is super soft and sustainable as its made from recycled materials.

Wojtek, a Syrian brown bear, was the mascot of the 22nd Polish Artillery Support Company (22 Kompania Zaopartrywania Artylerii) of the Second Polish Corps.

Found in Persian mountains in 1942, he travelled with the unit throughout the Middle East and Italy. He is reported to have helped move artillery ammunition at Monte Cassino, as depicted in the plaque. After the war he was kept at Edinburgh Zoo and was made a life member of the Scottish Polish Society. Wojtek died in 1963.
