The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

  1. Access denied, so no.
     
  2. Red lettering?

  4. The swastikas? (Beaten to it ... That's what I get for surfing while working.)

    But if it's the one I'm thinking of, it's either the disturbing red lettering, or the fact that' it's covered in swastikas.
     
  6. Those aren't swastikas. They face the wrong way so must be some Hindu/Buddist/Jainism thing.

    So probably Indian troops.

  10. Dead soldiers - killed by Germans - Swastikas - Popular with Germans- Balmoral / Royal family -all Germans - me sitting in Germany - surrounded by Germans...

  11. Indeed its the Swastikas (both correct way round and incorrect). We get a lot of tourists completely confused as to why they are on the Memorial and thats why the explaination was added to it. I think the resident "Royal Guard"got fed up with being asked...as they did not know themselves....
     
  12. i was going to suggest it hasnt been lagged on by a pissed up student/chav
