Geocache Description:


This is an off-set cache. The cache is not at these coordinates but about a 10 minute walk away. At this waypoint are clues to help you find the cache coordinates. This cache is dedicated to all who sacrificed their service for our country, many of whom paid the ultimate price. Hopefully, you will learn a bit about our history, and to pay your respects to all who served and still serve.

The final destination is: N49° 13.ABC’ W122° 36.DEF’

Answer some questions about the cenotaph and surroundings to get your final coordinates.

1. The difference between the starting year and ending year listed at the bottom of the cenotaph on the side that has the name G. Bing = A

2. The ending year on the side of the cenotaph that has the name C.P. Blake minus the year on the Amiens monument = B

3. The last digit on the year on the Amiens monument = C

4. The year on the Vimy Ridge monument minus the year on the Somme monument = D

5. The difference between the starting year and the ending year on the side of the cenotaph that has the name C.P. Blake = E

6. The difference between the starting year and the ending year on the side of the cenotaph that has the name S.O. Adams plus D = F

There is only room for a log book, so please BYOP. This can be a busy area and the container blends in, so please be careful and replace exactly as you found it.

Congrats to The Stainless Steel Rat on FTF and to the team of wamfam/PhotoGeo5 on STF.
