Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #33 We will remember them ~ Shiney Row.


This memorial was unveiled in 1922 by Lord Joicey and was erected in honour of the men of the Penshaw Parish. This memorial needed to be re-sited when the large roundabout was built, my dad actually used to play football with his brother in there as it's that big!

This is a multi-cache and can be found by working out the coordinates from the clues below.

The cache is a small magnetic cache and is located a short walk at N54 51.ABC W 001 29.DEF. The area is high muggle area so extreme stealth will be needed.

A = Multiply the number of benches around the memorial by 3
B = Number of letters of the last Hero's surname on the EAST FACE and in the left column
C = Around the memorial is a metal fence, with gaps. Divide the number of posts by 2
D = Multiply the number of plant pots around the memorial by 2
E = On all sides there are some numbers at the top, subtract the FIRST digit from the second digit
F = Number of letters of the first Hero's surname on the EAST FACE and in the left column.

Checksum is 46

There are literally thousands of War memorials around the country. WW1 Memorials were usually raised through public subscription to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. This year 2014 is also the centenary of the start of the First World War it's about time there was a series dedicated to War Memorials. There is an un-numbered series in Scotland called Lest we forget. The name of this series We Shall remember them, was chosen from the very moving poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon. It is well worth searching out and reading.”
