Desert Dave sends out yet another message from his HUMMERhttp://i.imgur.com/5wmAuxD.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/5wmAuxD.jpgOK that one gets a rec. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2226203/Skeleton-her...Skeleton of hero World War II carrier pigeon found in chimney with a secret message still attached to its leg (and now Bletchley Park are trying to crack the code) David Martin, 74, found the stricken bird when he opened the disused fire place while renovating his Surrey home It is thought the pigeon may have stopped on the chimney and become overcome with fumes Experts believe the pigeon may have been flying back to General Montgomery Headquarters in Reigate, Surrey or Bletchley Park, Bucks By David Wilkes PUBLISHED:12:21 GMT, 1 November 2012| UPDATED: 02:14 GMT, 2 November 2012He had survived the perilous flight back from Nazi-occupied territory hundreds of miles away. Exhausted, the British ‘spy’ pigeon swooped down on a chimney in Surrey for a rest. And there, sadly, he fell off his perch. Perhaps overcome by fumes from the fire below, he died – with a vital coded message in a tiny capsule still strapped to his leg.

There was no wireless (radio); communication with command posts was by means of two pigeons, which had their own small exit hatch in the sponsons, or by runners. Because of the noise and vibration, early experiments had shown that radios were impractical, so lamps, flags, semaphore, coloured discs, and the carrier pigeons were part of the standard equipment of the various marks.
The message read:1 sack of flour2 dozen eggs5 liters milk1 pint of brandy for the boys
