Surprisingly chirpy ending to the case of the mysterious 'poppy thief'
I don’t want to detract from the significance of Remembrance Day today, as it has always been important to me to reflect on and give thanks for the service & sacrifices made by our military and veterans.
However I was amused with the story this year of the staff at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Canberra who, since early October, had begun noticing that some of the poppies kept disappearing. Then just 3 days ago they realised the thief was in fact a pigeon, who had built a colourful home near a stained glass window at the Australian War Memorial. The photo of the pigeon with the poppy in it’s mouth is just priceless. #lestweforget #remembranceday
