On the former island in south-west part of Holland where I live lies close to the sea the village Ouddorp. West of that village is a rugged dune area called Westduinen. The story goes that the Germans had made there a phoney airfield, which was bombed by the British several times. To gather information from occupied Europe the English dropped small baskets containing a pigeon with a small container, a piece of paper, some food for the pigeon and a letter asking to write on that small piece of paper whatever useful information about the Germans, connect the container to the leg of the pigeon and release it (the pigeon, of course). One pigeon was found by a local from Ouddorp. He wrote down that the airfield was not real and sent the pigeon on it's way. Some time later a British plane flew over the "airfield" and dropped a wooden bomb. It is a nice story, but I don't know if it is true. Anyone of you able to confirm this story or deny it? Levien.
