How Well Do You Know Your Highway Code?

Is it only Wiltshire that has this road sign at the entrances to villages, or do they need them at the end of Whitehall as well?

(In case you are rusty it means "Tanks Forbidden" - the sign for "Tank Crossing", or "Beware Tanks" is in a triangular sign)

I knew that.....Honest.

I remember seeing those in Wiltshire, near Salisbury plain somewhere. I kinda assumed it meant watch the fuck out there are tanks about! :)

Have you had a look around Imber?

It was my misfortune to spend one of the coldest nights of my life on an exercise on Salisbury Plain. So cold the water in my bottle froze. It may not mean much to anyone else but it was freezing. Those Army issue socks were useless.

I fear I agree with Zorro. Since there is no diagonal line through it, I would interpret the sign as "Warning: Tanks and other Military Equipment Crossing Ahead."

I think it means, "Watch out there's an Infantry Tank Mk 1 (a Matilda) ahead."
That track shape hasn't been used for about 60 years.
