Wick And District Pigeon Club HistoryThumbnail for article : Wick And District Pigeon Club History

In the days before TV and widespread car ownership, communities like Wick had thriving sports/arts/hobby scenes—hard to believe now, but the 1904 Fur & Feather Show had 600 exhibitors for a 3-day event! With the first World War having seen homing pigeons used in large numbers as battlefield messengers, it was a natural progression for the Wick fanciers to provide pigeons to the National Pigeon Service during World War 2.
