>I've never seen them on anything other than Virgin's 747s.<

I've seen it on BCAL and BA DC-10s.

And in a book I have a photo of an Air Europe 757 with the same markings
in front of the L2 door and behind the L3 door. This airplane has 4 cabin
doors with no overwing exits. It appears the bottom of this 'do it
yourself' hatch is a foot or so above the top of the cabin doors, so you'd
go through ceiling panels and not the bag bins.

Another one of those quaint British traditions?
