Brand legt Landmarkierung aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg frei

Ein Feuer in der irischen Grafschaft Wicklow hat auf Bray Head eine gut erhaltene Landmarkierung aus dem zweiten Weltkrieg freigelegt.

„The signs were built by the Coast Watching Service by the summer of 1944 to warn „belligerent“ aircraft that they were flying over a neutral country. Up to 150 tons of stone were used in some of the 83 signs dotted around the coast of Ireland. At the request of the United States air force the number of the nearby lookout post was added, turning the signs into air navigation aids. This assisted American bomber pilots in navigating across the Atlantic.“
