SZ6398 : When in England ....

taken 8 years ago, near to Southsea, Portsmouth, Great Britain

When in England ....
When in England ....
Spotted in Southsea, Hampshire. The signpost obviously has distances on it, but with a strange km suffix. Now, if I happened to be in France, or Germany, I would not expect to see signposts with distances quotes in miles; indeed the local population would probably find it very confusing. So, "Why", I ask myself, "do signposts in England not quote distances in miles?".
