My comment: I feel certain that the men who were expected to man this pillbox would have known how to deal in no short measure with the graffiti vandals who daub their mindless daubs all over the place.

Why these miscreants feel the need to graffiti everywhere is beyond me? a week down the mines would sort them out.
