Keeping with the theme of Dungeness, here is a little background. The name Dungeness derives from Old Norse nes: "headland", with the first part probably connected with the nearby Denge Marsh. Popular etymology ascribes a French origin to the toponym, giving an interpretation as "dangerous nose".
This image shows on of the few partially standing signal posts which are scattered along the shingle beach. The posts were used as part of the once very active Military Ranges which connected to the nearby Hythe and Lydd Ranges. I remember with great fondness when I was a young and very inexperienced soldier when we would spend a day at the said ranges, then head off to Shornecliffe Barracks which was located in Sandgate further down the coast for a well earned pot of gruel kindly provided by the Aldershot Cement Company (ACC).
Thank you for all your wonderful comments and messages following yesterdays upload, a few words of wisdom were passed on as to how to improve the fore mentioned image, after taking into consideration what had been said I uploaded a variant shortly afterwards. "A man who makes no mistakes knows nothing?"
I hope that you all have a great day ahead, unfortunately or fortunately Kizmet never made the vets yesterday, as there was an emergency operation to be carried out. So we have to pop down today.
Regards as always Nathan
