Geocache Description:


You are looking for a small camouflaged container. You do not need to enter the churchyard to find the cache, but you would be very welcome to spend some quiet time here while visiting. There is parking at the GZ, or down the lane at the main road. However, this makes a lovely walk from nearby Milton.

Albert Cecil Bradshaw was born in 1895 in Coalville.  He lived at 5 Gutteridge Street, opposite another of the Famous 50, Fred Briars. He went to the Wesleyan school on Belvoir Road and was a blacksmiths striker, later becoming a wagon building worker. He married Florence Trueman from Margaret street at Ebenezer Church.  He was killed on 11th October 1918 near to Riquiveral Wood, France by German machine gunners.

 

He was created by young people from Stephenson Studio School for the Famous 50 exhibition.

 

First 50 Heroes

The Coalville Heroes Series celebrates the first fifty volunteers from our area to take part in the Great War of 1914-18. Each geocache commemorates a real volunteer and describes his activities during the Great War.
