Still in use today is this sign post that bears the scars of a bullet hole from an air raid one night during WW2. If you look half way down on the black part of the post you can see the hole which is about the size of a man’s fist.

Thanks ever so much,POP’s :-) This is about the closest I’ve ever come to a gun so find it fascinating!
What an amazing bit of History Trish I find this type of shot so interesting, Is it Somerset District Council?
It was Somerset County Council, then went to Avon and now it’s North Somerset. I love history that involves real people rather than all the Kings, Queens and dates :-)
Fabulous capture & story about the history of this sign, Trish !Congrats on your feature.
Thanks so much, Jan :-)
Marvellous photo Trish – wouldn’t look the same in colour with that history !
That’s what I thought, Roy :-) Thanks ever so much :-)
Nice historical photo Trish and great timing catching the bird in it,,, Rick

Very many thanks, Dave :-)
amazing love !
Thanks again, Guendalyn :-)
