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)
A man discovered the skeleton of a veteran carrier pigeon with a secret Second World War message attached to its leg - in his chimney.
Hero? For all we know, we might have won the war in 1944 if it had got through.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... z2AzjlK4QD
The speculation is heavy in that one..
carrying top secret war information back home to the UK from Nazi Germany
So it's from Nazi Germany is it...I wonder who sent that...isn't it a bit far?
The message has been sent to wartime decoding headquarters Bletchley Park
No it hasn't because it's no longer operational.
flying back from Nazi Germany to General Montgomery Headquarters in Reigate, Surrey.
Or General Montgomery Headquarters in Reigate?
The destination X02 is believed to be the secret code for Bomber Command, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
Or Bomber Command, High Wycombe?
may well have been flying back to Monty’s HQ or Bletchley Park from Nazi occupied Normandy during the invasion.
Or Bletchley Park?
And I thought you said it was coming from Germany? Now it's coming from Nazi occupied Normandy?
So in summary, you have no idea where it was going to or where it was coming from.
