WWII Carrier Pigeon Finally Delivers Secret Message
Secrets from World War II may have been found in a coded message attached to the skeleton of a carrier pigeon found in an English chimney.
The bird was found when David Martin in Bletchingly, Surrey, was renovating his fireplace.
Martin told the BBC that he began “pulling it down, pulling it down…then the pigeon bones began appearing one by one by one. Down came the leg with the red capsule on with a message inside.”
