WWI Air Raid Shelter sign. A hand-painted sheet metal sign (91cm x 112cm) showing a Zeppelin against a black background, clearly marked with the German Cross, caught in searchlights. The lower part of the sign is painted white, and contains the text “Warning” in red, then in black on the following lines “Zeppelin Raids are now on the increase. Shelter 100 yds ’!”. Pierced at the four corners and at the top centre for fixings, the right side shows significant corrosion, as does the back. A very rare and interesting item.GC See Plate 2
