One wonders if the pigeons knew which side they were on! Do carrier pigeons taste good and would they be seen as 'fair game' to supplement bully beef and biscuits?  On that note we return firmly to Pigeon Watch!

Only if they were called “Speckled Jim”!

I’m assuming German carrier pigeons were identified by the black crosses on their wings? 🙂

Surely, in WW1, they would be multi coloured or gaudy reds, pinks and purples as the hun favoured painting their flying machines?

Now there would be an interesting painting Scully! Pigeon/ flying machine hybrid!

I’m getting pictures in my head now of **** Dastardly (surely modelled on the evil hun) in the “stop the pigeon” cartoons and the pigeon with flying helmet and goggles.

they do say as you get older things from one’s childhood are recollected in preference to the short term memory

**** not edited by me! Apparently Richard cannot be shortened on PW!🤪
