Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #73 We shall remember them ~Dalton-on-Tees



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.”


It is to commemorate the two squadrons of the Royal Canadian Air Force stationed at Croft Airfield during WWII. It is a bronze statue of an airman in flying suit with left arm raised to shield his eyes. There is plenty of information around the memorial area regarding the squadrons involved.
