Send for the pigeon guy, mon ami
A very serious French soldier of the 141st Regiment with homing pigeons in 1915. According to reports, they played a vital part in the Great War on all side as they provided an extremely reliable way of sending messages. “Such was the importance of pigeons that over 100,000 were used in the war with an astonishing success rate of 95 percent.”
And today, 102 years later, the French still keep at least one guy on the payroll versed in carrier (pigeon) operations– just in case.
