Today I get a phone call from Terry Higgs, from Rossington -Doncaster, to thanks me for the pigeons I sent him last Year 2016. He bred some top Youngsters of them, and he won good prices with now this last weekend he won the 1e Provincial and 1e Sector ad 9 National all England. This with a head wind on 306 Mile distance, arrived afer7 hours and 58 minutes, on a speed of 1128 Yards a minute.
The winner was bred out 2 fresh Leo van Rijn pigeons from mostly the National Champion King and Keizer , and a little from mother of Benjamin line, cross with a W. de Bruin.
Leo Van Rijn the undisputed King of the Dutch pigeon sport
I have always had the greatest admiration for men with a small basket and big results and this is most definitely the order of the day for the phenomenon and fanatical fancier who is the victorious Van Rijn from De Lier in the Southwest of Holland , a stone’s throw away from the port of Rotterdam.

Hello Leo,
I only have two of your pigeons now, I gave the rest away to friends that are doing well with their children ,(for me pigeons had to take a back seat for the last few years), your birds have won up to 1st open nipa and took positions in the open and section regularly ,I have taken open positions with them in the east down combine, they have also took positions in the ulster federation for friends, This year a yearling hen was 50th open 10th section in the hens national in the nipa, not sure about birdage but as a youngster she was 5th open nipa with just under 26,000 birds she also has a couple off positions around 100th to 150 with big birdage ,
Good Luck and Good Health Mark
