The “unbreakable” coded message found on the skeleton of a dead World War II carrier pigeon has finally been broken, reports the Telegraph.

A team of Canadian researchers believe the message was sent by a British Army paratrooper sent to occupied Normandy to scout German tank and infantry groupings for RAF Bomber Command.

The code was found by David Martin when he was restoring his old fireplace.
