Geocache Description:


Statement from the Burton Latimer Branch, The Royal British Legion: "Our fine War Memorial sited at "The Cross" on the High Street is a reminder to all who pass by of the sacrifice made by families of Burton Latimer in two world wars. It records the names of 126 Burtonians who died. More than thirty of those listed from the First World War have no known grave, and so in our minds this memorial must represent their resting place and grave here in their home town. Of the remainder only a handful are buried in Burton Latimer, not all marked with the Commonwealth War Graves stone. Of the rest, most lie in Flanders, but also further afield such as Italy, North Africa, and Palestine. At our annual Remembrance Day Parade we are proud to join the town's organisations to lay wreaths as a sign of respect and remembrance to those who died, and thanksgiving for those who returned."
We will remember Them.
