    Its all coming back to me now, its a long long time since I even thought about this. I am referring to racing pigeons of course. An expandable rubber ring is applied on race morning or the evening before, the rubber band is then removed when the bird enters the loft after returning home, the rubber ring is then inserted into the clock and it records how long the bird took to get home

    The one piece ring is attached to the bird when its very young, the owner will be issued with a certain amount of rings and it proves the bird belongs to him/her.

    I cant imagine the SS being that concerned where their pigeons ended up ?? ....

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Must be a ring from one of Franz Liebkind's pigeons.
