Barbed Wire Posts

Recommended Posts

Used originally in Great War, still going I think. You used to be able to buy them by the trailer load for tempoary fencing in paddocks. They were used in the Second World War, a number of pictures of frtifications in Jersey and Gurnersey show fences on silent pickets. A lot of framers used them up to the late 1960's in the Island before that new fangles Electric fencing stuff. Mind you the wire was diffrent from commercial type. About 1/2 inch barbs set about 1/4 inch apart. Nasty stuff to handle even with thick rawhide mitts.
