This mysterious WWII code found on dead pigeon might have been solved12/17/2012
If you've been frantically wondering about the meaning of that coded message found strapped to a WWII carrier pigeon, you might finally be able to get some rest. Gord Young, from Ontario, Canada, believes he's decoded the note, which was unearthed when the pigeon's body was discovered hidden in an English chimney in November. A code book Young inherited was apparently key to cracking the cipher, which mystified experts at British intelligence agency GCHQ. Young says the code, which is "not complex," was written in 1944 by 27-year-old Sgt William Stott and details German troop positions in Normandy. GCHQ is yet to verify Young's translation. [Source]
