Geocache Description:


War Memorial cache #392 We will remember them ~ Greenhead

The memorial, which was Unveiled 13th November 1920, is a Runic cross approx. 20 feet high (5m) overall height on tall slender tapering shaft with boss at the crossing, on stepped sandstone base 298cm x 298cm.
The dedication for 1914-18 is in a sunken panel on the front, with the names in a single column on each of the two sides

This is a multi-cache and can be found a short distance away at N 54° 58.ABC W 002° 32.DEF by working out the coordinates from the clues below. Unfortunately the memorial is in desperate need of restoration making some of the words hard to read.
I need to rethink this cache, in the meantime you can research the answers here http://www.newmp.org.uk/detail.php?contentId=7293

A = The second number on the top of the stone at the base of the memorial
B = Number of letters in the first word of the inscription
C = Number of heroes with the name Robert on the 1939 - 1945 stone.
D = The memorial was unveiled in 19?0
E = Look behind you at the building with the green door, number of words above the door in black.
F = Add 1 to the first number shown on the stone at the base of the memorial.

Checksum for numbers is 20
