Today visited scotlands secret bunker.
Reminds me strong to my bunker time at the german air force for two years during cold war and so forgotten, deep emotions of fear came up again...
Also saw their phone central, similar to mine...
Manual swichboards were also my workplace, they are resilient against EMP, that's the reason why there were still in use during my time around 1983...

@vilbi quick question

if it's so secret how come you just posted about it


@Elizafox I have seen roadsigns... so I thought it was OK to toot ;-)

@vilbi @Elizafox

There is a similar museum just outside East London, it gets more publicity from the (London centric) BBC although the collections there aren't as authentic as the Scottish one

A brown background is UK roadsign code for a historical attraction, active MOD installation sign has red border and if not officially named might be signposted "Works Access Only" (its *not* a good idea to explore there unless authorised, at very least there are barriers and sometimes security patrols)


@vfrmedia @vilbi @Elizafox
Yep πŸ˜€
Plenty of places down near you @vfrmedia that are not marked as such. Quite a few places I know of in that area that are not marked on the maps, or where the map bears no resemblance to what is on the ground.
