    Just found this picture of my father who was in the Royal Navy, I guess this was taken in the late 1950's / early 1960's.

    A US Army Signal Corps message book. It contains twenty-five sets of form in triplicate for normal use, three sets in duplicate for pigeon use and twenty-five sheets of tracing paper. These message books formed part of the pigeon troop equipment. The individual message sheet that is in one of my carrier pigeon leg capsules is dated 1942, however, the sheets in this book are dated 1943.
    The message book can be seen in this well known image of paratroopers training in 1943.

    Default Pigeon container for military or civilian use?

    I have no experience with such items. I'm wondering if this container for pigeons or ..? Likewise, do you recognize any signs that point to military use? I only found a few photos where the pigeon container is tied to the body instead of the leg?

    Thx. Regards
