    Wonderful thread, very interesting indeed. I wonder what would happen to the Para Pigeon if the reserve was deployed?

    Also the dogs, last pic, the dog on the right. Is that the canine equivalent of a 1000yd stare?

    Best Regards,

    Andy

    Edit: Doggie stare.

    I doubt if many had a chance to use their reserve chutes, but if they did I suspect they'd get a face full of pigeon if this wartime picture is anything to go by!

    I know I said that animals were often forgotten about, but does nobody have anything!
    Surely the Germans had a belt buckle or cap for a dog handler or horse groom? (They seem to have one for every other branch of the military and beyond!). Do none of relic collectors have a rusty horse shoe from Russia? Any of the medal collectors a Dickin medal? Any of Allied collectors a dog parachute (ParaData | A living history of the Parachute Regiment and Airborne Forces) or horse gas mask?


    Although I collect WW2 militaria below is a link to a piece of WW1 history I wouldn't mind owning!

    Do you know what these dogs were used for? The 'rolls' on their backs are interesting
