The secret code found with the pigeon

A dead pigeon discovered recently in a chimney in Surrey may be able to provide new answers to the secrets of World War II.

The pigeon had a secret coded message attached to it, which has stumped code-breakers at GCHQ.

Can you help crack the code?

The pigeon message is as follows:

AOAKN HVPKD FNFJU YIDDC

RQXSR DJHFP GOVFN MIAPX

PABUZ WYYNP CMPNW HJRZH

NLXKG MEMKK ONOIB AKEEQ

UAOTA RBQRH DJOFM TPZEH
