Unusual way to tell the story of old war bunker

A PROTECTED historical relic needs a "bath" after someone wrote and drew pictures on it with white chalk.

But the unidentified person who wrote on No.7 Bridge Bunker, which was used as a fortification in 1945, will not get in trouble since he or she was trying to educate people. The person wrote a story about the bunker's history complete with pictures and maps. The story was headlined "Marching Towards Shanghai."

The Minhang Cultural Administration authority said yesterday that they would try to wash off the writing.

An official with the administration, surnamed Mei, said they would borrow the person's idea and set up a plaque detailing the bunker's history.

The bunker is on Caobao Road in Minhang District and was used during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. It is listed as a relic for patriotism education.

But few people on Caobao Road even know about the bunker and some don't even know its name as there is no information displayed.
