True story of a famous bear

  In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian rescured a baby bear.  He named her Winnie after his hometown of Winnipeg.  He was on his way to tend horses in World War 1.  He and Winnie went to War.

  From the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England and finally the London Zoo, this remarkable little bear became the inspiration behind the story of Winnie-the-Pooh.
