Did you know that pigeons played a vital role in the D-Day Landings? On June 6, 1944, Gustav the Pigeon was aboard an Allied ship off the coast of Normandy when the invasion began. He flew 150 miles in 5 hours and 16 minutes to bring the first news of the Normandy landings back to Britain. For his actions that day, Gustav was awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal in November 1944, the animal equivalent of the Victoria Cross.
