Mary of Exeter was a carrier pigeon who flew many military missions with the National Pigeon Service during World War II, transporting important messages across the English Channel back to her loft in Exeter, England. She was awarded the Dickin Medal in November 1945 for showing endurance on war service despite being injured on three occasions (she was attacked by a German war hawk, shot and hit by shrapnel) and emerging uninjured when her loft was bombed.  She died in 1950.
