Pigeons at War! | Wartime Code Found on Pigeon Bone Still a Mystery
This photo released by the Royal Pigeon Racing Association, shows the skeletal remains of a pigeon discovered in the chimney of a house in southern England which carried a mysterious, long-forgotten message from World War II.
So, basically, it was like to send the username with a pigeon, and the password with another one.
Using two different encryption algorithms.
On the bright side of the coin, enemies virtually had (at the time but also today) no chance to break the code.
However, if one of the two pigeons went missing (as it happened in this case) not even the recipient would have been able to figure out wtf was written in the message. Decypher it if you can.
Why not give a medal of honor to all those poor pigeons who lost their lives in the desperate attempt to deliver the messages? Pigeons played a key role during World War II, they'd deserve it
