Geocache Description:

War Memorial cache #192 We will remember them ~ South Hetton.


(inscription hidden)

Plain stone war memorial cross on a two-tiered base set inside a small kerbed area with gravel on a slightly sloping site within the grounds of the church just outside the north east facing roadside gable of Holy Trinity Church.
This memorial replaced a smaller memorial which was very similar in form and was erected up against the church wall. The old memorial is visible on Streetview images of 2009, this new one having not yet been erected. The original memorial was slightly different in that it had a three-tiered base and was erected by the South Hetton British Legion.

This is a multi-cache and can be found a short walk away at N 54 48.ABC W 001 24.DEF by working out the coordinates from the clues below.

A = Number of letters of the second word of line three minus the first number on the memorial
B = Number of heroes listed on the memorial
C = Number of letters in the third word on the fourth line
D = Number of letters of the first word on the base of the memorial
E = Number of letters of the first word on the third line
F = Number of letters of the middle word on the fifth line

Checksum for numbers is 23

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