Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #61 We will remember them ~Haswell


The Haswell War Memorial is located in the Churchyard of St. Paul's Church, Haswell. The memorial consists of a cross on top of a sturdy granite pedestal and was unveiled on the 18th July 1920. It honours the 83 heroes who lost their lives during the first world war.

This is a multi-cache and can be found by working out the coordinates from the clues below. The actual cache can be found a short drive away at N 54° 47.ABC W 001° 24.DEF . I would suggest doing the Haswell Church Micro at the same time as this cache.

A = Number of times the word King is shown on the front of the memorial

B = From the names on the left side (Surnames B to J) Subtract the number of letters in the first heroes christian name from the second heroes christian name

C = The memorial was unveiled in 192?

D = On the rear of the memorial number of heroes who's surnames are colours

E = Month from the date the memorial was unveiled

F = On the right side of the memorial, number of letters of the surname of the first hero listed.

Checksum for numbers is 18

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.”
