On N.W. parapet towards S.W. end of bridge. Parapet adorns a lamppost. The damage is only slight, but the numerals have taken a bit of a dunt. Was also covered in cement dust from nearby road maintenance.

This is the first non pillar flush bracket I ever saw! Although I bagged G4350 in 1986, I had seen G681 from a passing car in 1985. I dismissed it as a marker plate which just looked like an OSBM flush bracket. Back then I thought FBs only existed on triangulation pillars. I have been bagging trig pillars since 1983. GRP.
