A Different Type of Pin Badge For Remembrance Day (Image Added...)

In addition to the standard poppy pin badge, I have managed to purchase a special one that remembers the important role played by pigeons in the conflict.

There are many online pages dedicated to them. One such resource can be found here

  • That's nice. The role of pigeons during the wars is often forgotten. Wear it with pride MC especially for all you do to rescue and rehabilitate them.

  • That's a beautiful badge remembering the service that pigeons contributed to the war and so often overlooked, bless 'em all.

    Pigeons played a very vital role during the war, and like many animals, have been underrated and overlooked.

    Wear it with pride.
