A concrete bombing target arrow has been identified from vertical air photographs taken in 1945 (106G/UK/983, frames 4347-4348, flown 8 November 1945), immediately E of the Old Dalgety harbour (NT18SE 16). Visible on the photograph, the concrete arrow, which points SE, has two small structures on each side.

The arrow remains visible on RAF vertical air photographs up to the 1955 series.
