§ 30. Sir T. Moore
asked the Secretary of State for Air the number of pigeons used by his Department during the war; and whether any estimate is available of the losses from enemy action.
§ Mr. de Freitas
Approximately 100,000. About 23,000 were lost on operations, but how many of these were shot down we cannot say.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Are there so few pigeons now because all the pigeon holes are full of Socialist Bills?
