    I remember working at a bank in about 1978. We changed our time & temperature sign to Centigrade displaying a small 'c' after the number. Customer after customer after customer thought the 'c' meant 'cents'.

    MOD (Ministry of Defence) marker for Extra High Tension. We have a few of these around South Wales on the old weapons ranges and also where the cables go out to small islands off the coast.

    The tree has actually grown around the top of the sign, so I'm thinking WWII in date.

    If it's located on Crown Land that is of no real importance, I'd be tempted to head back and save it for posterity... at least that's what I'd do.
