The ‘Posting Sentries’ project is a unique undertaking by British street artist WD and is the first large scale urban art project of its kind. All over the United Kingdom there are wartime structures that have been lost underneath the sprawl of today’s society. Not only are the structures lost but the events and people connected to them have been as well. Airfields, bunkers, coastal batteries, air raid shelters, observation points and many more structures lay hidden from the view of the 21st century.

Structures from the two world wars and the more recent cold war have left their marks on both the urban and rural environments of the UK. To ensure that the population of today will remember the stories and people behind these decaying structures, WD began posting ‘sentries’ as a way of connecting with the past. These ‘sentries’ take the form of sprayed stencil forms, pasted paper murals or specially created sculpted pieces.
