Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #161 We will remember them ~ Walkern.


A straight forward traditional cache which will allow you to pay your respects and then quickly find the cache as a park and grab or ride and grab!

The Memorial is a handsome Cross in Forest of Dean stone, with a bronze wreathe and sword at the top, and reflects great credit on the architect, Captain Wilson of Victoria Street, London, and to the craftsmanship of Mr G Preston of Benington, to whom the work of erecting the Cross was entrusted.

At the base of the plinth on one side are the two sentences quoted above, while the remaining three sides have the names of the fallen inscribed.

The Memorial Cross was unveiled by Miss Cotton-Browne on the 3rd July 1921. The Last Post was sounded by Bandmaster Sergt. Nash and Sergt-Instructor Carpenter.

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. Year 2014 was 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 will remember them, was chosen from the very moving poem “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon. It is well worth searching out and reading.”
