Geocache Description:

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.” 

This war memorial remebers the bombing of Middlesbrough Train Station by a lone Dornier bomber on the 3rd August 1942. The plaque, a recent addition to the train station, lists those killed by the enemy action. GPS coverage at the plaque location may be hindered, but the plaque can easily be found, it's near to the big red post box.

The second part of this multi can be found at N54 34.ABC     W001 13.DEF

C = Add up the age digits for the second person listed ?

 To help, the numbers should add up to 35.

 

 If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Just-us-Two know first at justustwo1013@gmail.com so they can keep track of the memorial numbers and names to avoid any duplication.
