Concrete Arrow of Wartime Britain #8

Concrete Arrow of Wartime Britain #8


Musselburgh, United Kingdom (GB)
Spread across the landscape of Britain are the remains of some wartime concrete arrows built and used during World War II. These arrows were used by the Air Force and pointed towards bombing targets that were used to test bombs.

This arrow is located in the town of Musselburgh near Edinburgh and points out towards the Fifth of Forth. Target ships were placed out in the water and the arrow would guide bombers out towards the targeted ships. Two midget submarines were also used as targets and their wrecks are visible during low tide.
