    falklands mine sign

    does anyone know how to tell the real minesigns used on the falklands from the tourist ones that you can buy,they seem exactly the same.
    I would like to get a genuine one if possible.

    I don't know what they do now, but when I was there 20+ years ago, people could request mine signs from the EOD detachment in Port Stanley. They were the same thing as used on the minefields, but were given out free, with a certificate to prove that they hadn't been removed from the minefield fences. This was the easiest way to prevent people damaging the fences for souvenirs.
    All live and dug items shown in my posts have been dealt with accordingly by EOD professionals
