According to the British government 30 year papers they wanted to put some neon advertising on the Brit watchtowers in South Armagh to brighten them up!!

A prominent hilltop observation tower overlooking the main road from Belfast to Dublin could have been decked out under suggestions to spruce up the forbidding British Army structure during the conflict. Unsightly shields and barbed wire surrounded it to protect against rocket attacks.

A civil servant at the Northern Ireland Office wrote a note on the issue relaying the views of Peter Bottomley, who was the private secretary of Peter Brooke, the Northern Ireland secretary at the time.

It said: “He was sure that an imaginative way could be found to smarten up and decorate security structures in a way that would not be out of keeping with their function but would at the same time produce a pleasingly aesthetic effect on travellers.

How does one come across things like  this?

I remember reading that one before - I think there was a thread on here a couple of years back with good wikipedia stories and it was included. Just did a search and couldnt find it but this link contains a few similar stories:
