Today I found out how clever a pigeon can be…

I found out that pigeons can be well trained. Gustav was special because he sent message from Normandy all the way back to Thorney Island in England on D-Day.  He got a special medal for being brave and flying over 150 miles.

We had to design our own Dickin medal which is the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross.
