Pretty cool stuff. I spent an afternoon at Bletchley Park last fall when visiting Europe and saw the replica of the Colossus computer. They had a small carrier pigeon exhibit as well in the building that Alan Turing's office was in.

Incredible, too bad the messege did not arrive at the correct place. I wonder what difference it would have made on the senders life and the war effort.
