2015 $1 Coloured Frosted Uncirculated Coin Unlikely Heroes Great and Small - DD.43.Q.879 Blue Chequer Cock

Pigeons have been unsung heroes of many conflicts, carrying messages across battlefields when aeroplanes, radios and human feet would have been too easily detected by the enemy. The soldiers needed help, but their radio had failed. With pigeon power was their only hope; DD.43.Q.879 had to face the danger when two other pigeons had already been shot down. Against the odds, he reached HQ with this important message, and help was dispatched to save the patrol. ‘Q’ served with the Australian Army in 1944, and was awarded the Dickin Medal for “conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty”.
