    Superb find, one of my favourite subject matters, animals in warfare. Just thought I would add some photos of a SS brieftaubenstation.

    Just had a chat with my brother who kept my grandfathers loft and pigeon stock going for 20 years after my grandfathers death

    The solid rings/bands are normally applied to the pigeon squabs leg ( squeaker, chick ) at 6 days old, the leg then grows and the band can not be removed

    Bizarre item ! haha

    Cheers
