LOL, LH said he was bored with no Vista registry problems coming up so I sent him that link to solve! GCHQ still flummoxed. You just can't get the staff anymore.

I know those codes. It's breaking them down into 5's that makes them impossible.

Now this is a very interesting conundrum. What is the code?

This pigeon broke all protocols, flue into a stack, missed the loft (the eventual goal and collection point) and expired seemingly bereft of life.

Many years later this wingless bird, in endoskeleton state was found in Surrey stuck up a chimney with a very important message attached to his or her meatless leg.

DNA and PM reports are difficult to determine but the first printout might suggest this pigeon cound be dual nationality, made in Britain, about to be boiled in the Reich.

A quick breakdown of the message (to date)

mein boss in blody awful sit need seed soon blind in vun ey and cant c vay home pls advise and I love chimney sweeps but not this one!

I've been trying to work on this code all weekend and Lighthouse is correct in breaking them down into 5's, however I'm not sure if this is a poem code or if the key lies with the line UAOTA as it's in bold, although the first and last 5 are repeated which often depicts a 'key'.

Am going to have to look at working backwards using pre-determined numbers/alphabet hit and misses, oh bring back the days of simple reflection code.
