Geocache Description:

Sowerby War Memorial (on Remembrance Sunday 2006)

War Memorial cache #147 We will remember them ~ Sowerby


Sowerby War Memorial is a red granite cross on the village green outside St Oswald's Church. There are also war memorials inside St Oswald's Church and Sowerby Methodist Church. The lists of men who died in the First World War are slightly different on each memorial, but the lists of men who died in the Second World War are identical on all three memorials.

Information about the men listed on the war memorials in Sowerby is available online.

The cache is hidden at N 54° 13.ABC W 001° 20.XYZ

where

A = eighth number on the south face of the memorial

B = eighth number on the north face

C = fifth number on the south face

X = fourth number on the north face plus first number on the south face

Y = third number on the south face plus the seventh number on the south face

Z = sixth number on the south face minus the third number on the north face

**************************************

There are thousands of War Memorials around the country. WW1 Memorials were usually raised through public subscription to remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice. August 2014 was the centenary of the start of the First World War so Just-us-Two thought it was about time there was a series dedicated to War Memorials. The name of this series, "We will remember them", was chosen from the very moving poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon. It is well worth searching out and reading.

The War Memorial Series is a series started by Just-Us-Two.

If anyone would like to place a War Memorial Cache of your own then please do so and contact Just-us-Two through their profile page or justustwo1013@gmail.com so they can keep track of the numbers.
