About this deal

Wojtek (Voytek) was a bear cub found in Iran in 1942 and adopted by soldiers of the 22nd Artillery Supply Company of the Polish II Corps. Soldiers fed him with condensed milk from an emptied vodka bottle. The bear was subsequently fed with fruit, marmalade, honey and syrup, and was often rewarded with beer, which became his favorite drink. he also enjoyed smoking and eating cigarettes. The problem, however, was that British High Command did not allow any pets or animals in their camp, so the Polish Army formally enlisted Wojtek into their ranks. He was given the rank of Private (at the end of the war, his rank was corporal), assigned a serial number, and from that point on he was included in all official rosters.
