Geocache Description:


There are literally thousands of War memorials around the country. Memorials were usually raised through public subscription to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of our country. The year 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 called Poppies on Parade. Any of these will happily be added 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.”
 

This is a simple offset multi cache. The cache is not at the above coordinates but can be found at:

N54 19.ABC

W001 42.DEF

A = The number of letters in the surname of the fifth person listed on the front of the memorial

B = The number of fleur-de-lys on the top row of the left hand railings minus the number of fleur-de-lys on the top row of the right hand railings

C = The number of people named Joseph on the memorial

D = The number of letters in the surname of the fourth person listed on the front of the memorial

E = The number of letters in the surname of the second person on the left hand side of the memorial

F = How many people on the memorial named Eric?

Checksum = 22

"We will remember them!“
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.
