Marks on a wall in Brigstock
I believe this is some wartime marking for some service but needs confirming when moderated. An update with the assisistance of the local history society and a geographer suggest this is a V for victory painted on the wall soon after VE day (8th May 1945). It was painted by the village barber and the garage owner who both had premises nearby.
