There aren't that many legit keys, probably less than a dozen - I strongly suspect that there are a few non legit keys in circulation. IP: 86.136.235.69

A couple of nights ago A star within a circle comprising two arrows has been stencilled and a freehand Cornish flag drawn.


Presumably, the star is a version of a common military stencil?

Similar, however the star is a diamond, but curve the lines between the point inwards. (So diamond with the point at the bottom with thelines curved inwards)

Then forming a circle around it are 4 tear drop shaped swirls

The diamond bit is quite common but the teardrop circle does not really lead anywhere.

I don't remember it being like any of those.

Did I also see it up the top of the pull through?

I remember it being in the main stope?

I think I have it, the Cornish flag is the giveaway.

Cornish National Liberation Army which later became Cornish Republican Army is centered in Plymouth. There are possibly some splinter groups as well.

Cornish National Party emblem looks similar to daubing

That drawing looks like four mackerel swimming round Pat Butchers lipsSmile

Talking of mackerel:

Art connoisseur visits a famous American art museum, he's taken a back by a painting he sees called Custers Last Stand, there's a mackerel, some native American Indians copulating and a halo in it, he asks what the paintings deep symbolic meaning meant.

"Holy mackerel Indians f***ing indians" was the replySmile (groan)

Lozz.
