Circle. The arrows at Hawkinge and St Ingervert were constructed during WWI to help aircraft navigation (which was very basic in those days) across the Channel. One arrow was cut near Hawkinge and the other near St Ingervert nr Boulogne (France) to point pilots in the right direction. Two other figures also exsisted at Hawkinge, the Hawkinge identification / landing circle for the aerodrome and a target circle used for practice bomb runs. Later the arrow was used to aid targeting of the bombing target.
