Just reading about SNFC Rennes 1939.. Burrell Bros of Douglas Water entered 4 pigeons and were 3rd, 15th, 24th and 89th Open from 4390 birds.. as well as £422

 

Incredible stuff

Fantastic stuff

Rennes the holy grail

Nothing comes close

Just proves what was possible in the west when birds were racing straight line of flight

Was fortunate enough to have timed loads of good pigeons in the 70's from rennes

Sure we would still get a good entry

What a buzz to have on my headstone I won rennes

Happy days
