TA0183 : Inscription on the loop-holed wall in Seamer

Inscription on the loop-holed wall in Seamer
Inscription on the loop-holed wall in Seamer
The Seamer loop-holed wall is in Main Street, outside the Old Vicarage, and opposite St Martin's church. The wall is a rare survivor of Home Guard defences from the time of the Second World War, and the inscription dates it to '1940'. I don't know what the initials mean, but 'R.E.' could be Royal Engineers, and 'A.D.' may simply be Anno Domini for the year.
