WWII Carrier Pigeon Portrait, Webb-Foot, Mr. Dixon signed G. Wiltshire

This well detailed portrait of a proud banded pigeon is labeled on the back “WEBB-FOOT flown Bordeaua Owner Mr. Dixon.”  We found a short British news clip from 1939 showing Mr. Dixon and his carrier pigeons which were helping with Air Raid Protection Service.
