[quote]
You are responsible for occasional visits to your cache to maintain proper working order, especially when someone reports a problem with the cache (missing, damaged, wet, etc.). You may temporarily disable your cache to let others know not to search for it until you have a chance to fix the problem. This feature is to allow you a reasonable amount of time – normally a few weeks – in which to check on your cache. If a cache is not being maintained, or has been temporarily disabled for an unreasonable length of time, we may archive the listing.

Because of the effort required to maintain a geocache, we ask that you place physical caches in your usual caching area and not while on a vacation or business trip. It is best when you live within a manageable distance from the cache placements to allow for return visits. Geocaches placed during travel may not be published unless you are able to demonstrate an acceptable maintenance plan, which must allow for a quick response to reported problems. An acceptable maintenance plan might include the username of a local geocacher who will handle maintenance issues in your absence.[/quote]

Como owner, se tiver planos para recolocar a cache, por favor, contacte-me por [url=http://www.geocaching.com/email/?u=btreviewer]e-mail[/url].

Lembro que a eventual reactivação desta cache passará pelo mesmo processo de análise como se fosse uma nova cache, com todas as implicações que as guidelines actuais indicam.

Se no local existe algum container, por favor recolha-o a fim de evitar que se torne lixo (geolitter).

Obrigado

Português

Em 15 de Dezembro de 2007 decorreram em Castelo Branco as comemorações do 84º Aniversário do Núcleo da Liga dos Combatentes da cidade. Este dia foi assinalado com a transferência do cemitério da cidade, para a Quinta Nova, do monumento dedicado ao Combatente. Oitenta e três anos após a sua colocação no cemitério da cidade, (9 de Abril de 1924), este monumento encontra-se agora num local público muito perto do centro da cidade.

A obra tem cravados os nomes de diversas batalhas em que o sangue português foi derramado, da fundação da nacionalidade até à batalha de La Lys na I.ª Guerra Mundial (1914-1918). Por ter sido inaugurado em 1924 o monumento não inclui uma referência à Guerra Colonial (1961-1974), conflito no qual esteve envolvida a actual geração de antigos combatentes. Uma lacuna que deverá ser preenchida em breve com a colocação de uma placa junto ao monumento.

É um monumento que com certeza é de total desconhecimento de muitos habitantes da cidade e é uma homenagem para com aqueles que deram a vida, ou lutaram por aquilo que pensavam ser o melhor para o seu país

English

In 15th December 2007 the commemorations of the 84th Anniversary of the Nucleus of “Liga dos Combatentes” of the city occurred in Castelo Branco. This day took place the transference of the monument dedicated to the Combatants, from the cemetery to the “Quinta Nova”. Eighty three years after being placed in the cemetery of the city, (9 April 1924), this monument meets now in a public place very close to downtown.

The monument has the names of diverse battles where the Portuguese blood was spilled, from the foundation of the nationality until the battle La Lys in the I.ª World-wide War (1914-1918). For having been inaugurated in 1924 the monument does not include a reference to the Colonial War (1961-1974), conflict in which were involved the current generation of old combatants. A gap that will have to be filled soon with a plate next to the monument.

It is a monument that with certainty is of total unfamiliarity of many inhabitants of the city and it is a homage to those who had given life, or had fought for what they thought to be the best for the country at that time.
