Carrier Pigeon poster Featured Swifts Print

Carrier Pigeon poster

Poster warning people of the dangers of shooting carrier pigeons who may be carrying life or death messages. Carrier pigeons, we are told, are a vital part of RAF, Army and Navy signal service and fly swift and sure on a straight course. Wood pigeons, on the other hand, are pests and destroyers of crops, erratic in flight and crafty. Date: 1940s
