Geocache Description:



This War Memorial stands alongside the A30, at the entrance to the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst.  It commemorates those from Camberley and surrounding areas who fell in both the First and Second World Wars, although you will see from the details on the memorial that the fallen originally came from far and wide.

The Memorial is made from Cornish granite from Penrhyn, and is in the form of a Latin Cross.

The given co-ordinates are for the Memorial Cross itself, which you will need to visit in order to calculate the location of the actual cache.  There is absolutely no parking either on the A30, or by the memorial itself (the entrance to the RMA). Some restricted street parking is available nearby (see waypoint), alternatively there are car parks in the centre of Camberley.

- Number of letters in the surname of the Canadian Cameron Highlander is A

- Number of letters in the surname of the soldier from the Machine Gun Corps is B
