All around York (and certainly other towns and cities in the UK – but this is where I lived and noticed them) you will see small, brightly coloured metal plaques attached to old buildings. These are fire insurance marks and were there to show that the building had insurance against fire with a particular company. Many insurance companies had their own fire brigades and would only put out fires in buildings that were insured by them. This however, is a modern day and I think American Navy fireman.
