Below is a 2 page letter to W.T. Rimer asking him to be on standby with pigeons for a possible special task.
Below is an example of the type of military intelligence written by a brave patriot and delivered by pigeon 121 who participated in Operation Columba. It is also a look at life under the German occupation. The message reveals that a parachutist is safe but the person who sheltered him will be shot.
