ROC Posts

Okay, so what's a ROC Post? Well, during the Cold War (no, not an icecream van fight but the hostilities between the East and the West) there was an increasing threat of nuclear attack. The Royal Observer Corps (ROC) were given the job of reporting nuclear bursts and monitoring fall-out (shouldn't have worn Y-fronts!). To do this job 1563 underground posts were built throughout the UK. For more info have a look at Subterranea Britannica
