Product Details

Reproduction "Bastogne" road sign.

These road signs are high quality replicas of the original WW2 vintage signs. Made of high grade 18 gauge steel and measuring approximately 83 x 25 cm, these are impressive pieces of WW2 memorabilia. 

These particular signs are from the Belgian town of Bastogne, scene of an iconic battle of WW2. In December 1944, the Wehrmacht launched its last major offensive in the West. The aim was to drive a wedge between the Allied Army Groups advancing into Germany. The Belgian town of Bastogne sat at the junction of several key roads and it was imperative that the Germans capture it in order to speed their advance. However, the American 101st Airborne Division held out for several days, whilst being completely surrounded and cut off from reinforcements. On 26 December, the siege was finally lifted. The defence of Bastogne would go down in history as one of the most well-known battles of the European campaign. 

These signs are a symbol of history and would make a great gift for any WW2 history enthusiast. These items make excellent display pieces.

Please note: These signs have sharp edges and should be handled with caution.
