You're on one side of a medieval or fantasy battle or castle siege, and you want to deliver a message to someone on the opposing side. How to do it? Write your note on a scrap of paper, tie it to an arrow shaft, and have a friendly archer send it on its way. Bonus points if you hit an enemy mook on the receiving end.

* During UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo, on the Eastern Front a modern version was sometimes used by the Red Army: when radio communication wasn't available or forbidden because of stealth, dud [[MacrossMissileMassacre Katyusha missiles]] were used to deliver mail.
** Using rockets or missiles to deliver mail has been done by various nations throughout history, often as experiments or gimmicks. The US Postal Service once famously used a Regulus cruise missile to deliver 3,000 pieces of mail, consisting entirely of commemorative postal covers addressed to the President, the Postmaster General, and numerous other public officials and VIPs to celebrate the event. The Post Office established a post office on a Navy submarine, which postmarked the letters before loading them into the missile, which was launched at a nearby naval station, where the mail was sorted and forwarded to the postal service for delivery by the typical methods.

* The Count does this in ''YoungDracula'', tying a note proclaiming a blood fued to a flaming arrow and shooting it at the Branaghs. However, the burn damage the note sustains causes half the message to be unreadable and Graham Branagh thinks it's a note asking him to examine Dracula's drains. HilarityEnsues.
