Sign (11A22)

This copper alloy sign was found south of the Plymouth Breakwater that is a well known place for divers to find debris dumped on the seabed, most likely from the dockyard at Devonport dumped many years ago.

The sign is in two languages with German at the top and Spanish underneath. The German text says 'Rettung Sgürtel', which should correctly be spelled 'Rettungs-Gürtel' and means lifebuoy. The Spanish text says 'Boya Salvavida' which also means lifebuoy.
