Deranged signpost at Biggin
Whoever defaced this signpost would have found gainful employment during World War 2, when directional signposts were removed,in order to confuse the Germans had they invaded.
The signs could have been left in situ, and the Panzergrenadiers would have wasted hours puzzling over the weird English, giving Dad's Army a fighting chance.
