This memorial is an impressive 3.65m cenotaph which is a smaller scale replica of the one in Whitehall, reportedly the only replica and was unveiled in January 1922. The front of the memorial has a bronze sword and swags at the top. Whilst you visit this memorial, take a moment to visit the memorial of Sgt William McNally a local hero which also has a cache dedicated to him.

This is a multi-cache and can be found by working out the coordinates from the clues below, note that the memorial lists Heroes with First and Last names..

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.”
