Post WWII Beach Warning Sign from Slapton Sands – Item 103301

Interesting post was warning sign removed from Slapton Sands which was the site of Exercise Tiger, or Operation Tiger. Which was one of a series of large-scale rehearsals for the D-Day invasion of Normandy. These rehearsals  took place in April 1944 on Slapton Sands in Devon. It resulted with much military hardware etc being left on the sands.

Metal and wooden sign measures 20 x 30cm approx and marked “Caution Wire and Steel dating back to the War may occasionally become exposed. Suitable footwear is recommended”. On reverse is an old label stating that this plaque was removed from a wooden post at Slapton Sands during the 1983 clearing up operation around the beach and surrounding footpaths. These during the war were not open to the public.
