French Front messenger-pigeon service 1917

Special mobil messenger-pigeon service 'lofts' built on a motor-vehicle chassis were used in the Western Front during World War One. Also messenger-pigeons were found to be very useful on the Vosges Front, for despatch carrying between posts and station in rear of the trenches among the wooded hills.

The Red Cross for the Russo-Japanese War

An ambulance dog supplied by Major Edwin Richardson, the renowned dog trainer to the Russian army during the Russo-Japanese war in 1904. The top photographs show Richardson giving the dog a message, barking to attract attention to stretcher bearers and on sentry duty at an outpost. The bottom illustrations show dogs in use by the Germans and Italians. When the First World War broke out, the Germans had about six thousand trained dogs whereas the British had just one. Richardson pioneered the training of messenger dogs in Britain despite reservations from the military authorities. Eventually, he became commandant of the British War Dog School at Shoeburyness which successfully supplied hundreds of dogs who worked as messengers at the front. Date: 1904
