    "The silhouette of Walcheren bristled up with guns is brining some sad thoughts."

    Hi Possopo,

    I think it means :The silhouette of Walcheren covered with/thick [as if with bristles] with guns is revealing/disclosing some sad thoughts.

    Regards,
    Bristled does mean covered with/thick with. I'm afraid, Possopo, that in the second part there again seems to be a spelling mistake. There is no verb brine - and I guess again it should be bring.

    Hi !

    I thought it might be "bringing" but I hesitated. I have to be more careful.

    I am sorry for the wrong answer, Possopo.

    Thank you for clarifying that ,Davy.
