Pigeons in Warfare



For all the friends of Speckled Jim, an article from Miniature Warfare of November 1970 on this unjustly neglected subject.

It said on the news that a number of pigeons had received medals - especially during WW1.

Can't help thinking they'd have preferred a bowl of Trill instead.

Good on Airfi for includinga pigeon with their French infantry all those years ago!

There's a rather good model of a WW1 mobile pigeon loft on the HaT Everything Toy Soldiers site http://www.hat.com/Othr8/Taran06P.html
