Other new blue plaques are already in the pipeline. Dame Georgiana Buller will be commemorated later this year, as will the story of Mary, a pigeon who won the Dickin Medal for Outstanding War Service in the Second World War, and her breeder Cecil Brewer who used his pigeons for covert military intelligence. Work has also begun on the folklorist and hymn writer Sabine Baring-Gould and the Exeter-born First World War nurse Elsie Knocker, among others.
