    Default WW2 Carrier Pigeon

    You know you've lost it when you start buying taxidermy animals to display in your collection!
    Attached to the pigeon is an original American carrier Pigeon leg capsule. All I need now is an suitable name for the bird - any ideas?

    How about Homer the Homing pigeon? Looks very cool by the way.

    That is a superb talking point!! I wish he were mine.

    As for a name, may I respectfully suggest 'Speckled Jim'.....YouTube - ‪blackadder - shooting of the carrier pigeon‬‏

    I like the name Speckled Jim, I just need to think of an appropiate rank now. Private First Class? Captain? Major?

    All you need now is Vest,pigeon, issued to mainly paratroopers to send back within 6 hours. Or container, pigeon, PG-101/CB, for parachuteing in 8 birds. Or container, pigeon PG51, 4 bird container made of ply.

    I've been looking for a vest for while - about 10 - 15 years ago I think Blunderbuss Antiques had a load for about 15 each, unfortunatetly the price seems to have sky rocketed. I have seen a couple of the containers but again they are expensive (I bought the leg capsule for about 6, I think they're going for 50+ now?). I think I'll start looking for an original dog harness and get a stuffed German Shepherd or maybe a saddle and briddle and get a stuffed horse.
