    What do the signposts with the letter V mean?

    Just the ordinary white road side wooden post, in a residential street.

    Is it a water pipe perhaps??

    Oh and I’ve done a google search and all I get is :

    “V is for Vendetta” and

    the V sign is a finger sign of peace!

    🙂

    🙂 I’m sure I’d get funny looks if I was seen taking photos of signposts.

    You know there are usually white wooden posts on footpaths and sometimes they might have a reflector on it and sometimes a letter. I know some indicate water, phone or gas lines but the V one has me thinking.

    Hmmm, maybe the V is for Valve as in water or sewerage valve??

    Valve on the water main probably…….

    Hubby thinks Valve also.

    Perhaps our version of a fire hydrant?

    A fire hydrant has a ‘H’ sign. At least here it does. ‘V’ is for valve which is different. I have also seen ‘AV’ which might be air valve – not sure on that one….

    🙂 I’m probably madder than I think

    From consensus it looks like V is for Valve!!
