WW2 Pigeon Code Broken?

By January 4, 2013

Follow me on:

A few weeks ago I reported on the World War 2 code discovered attached to the leg of a very dead pigeon found in a chimney. At that stage the people with the code couldn't break it, so  they went public, and we now have a possible answer. Gord Young, from Canada, believes he has been able to translate the code using a World War One artillery codebook. The Telegraph has the original code, and the translation as it stands so far. It's believed to have been sent by Sergeant Stott, a paratrooper reporting the position of enemy units.
