War Memorial cache # 62 We Shall Remember them - Whitburn.



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. 2014 was the centenary of the start of the First World War, so it was about time there was a series dedicated to War Memorials. There is an un-numbered series in Scotland called Lest we forget and another we have learned about called Poppies on Parade. We will gladly add any of these to the War Memorial Series, just ask for a number. 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.”

Whitburn war memorial was unveiled 2nd January 1921 by the Bishop of Durham. It is a granite column, 15 feet high, with 'LEST WE FORGET' on the side above a bronze wreath.

The cache is hidden at: N54 56.ABC W001 22.DEF
