Horse-drawn mobile lofts
drawing
Image by National Library of Scotland
Five horse-drawn mobile pigeon lofts are parked around the perimeter of a small field. They are rather like small caravans. The loft in the foreground is numbered 131. A soldier is standing beside it, feeding the pigeons on the roof. Two rather thin horses are grazing in the background.

This image illustrates the importance of carrier pigeons during World War I. Pigeons were even carried on warships. During the war, many birds of prey were culled to stop them killing the pigeons.

[Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT IN FRANCE. British army carrier pigeons in France. Horse-drawn mobile lofts.']
