Another three to add to Dover's collection; I'm now clearing vegetation to get photos of the damn things!
All three are set in the wall running up Castle Hill, at head height and hidden behind the Ivy.

Normally shown on maps as B.M. (bench mark).
I agree & normally thee  is a  horizontal line above the arrow tip. 1938 shows only .155

This sign and half a sign quite close to it, upper left in the same picture, is on the brick wall of the building at the top of Love Lane, Minster, sheppey, Kent.


Think that is a "spot height" mark, shown on OS 1938 as 155 ft ASL
