This War Memorial commemorates the former members of the Glasgow Academy who served in the First World War. It marks their service and sacrifices as a reminder and inspiration to those who come after.
In that role, it is largely intended as a memorial for the children who have since attended, now attend and will in future attend the Glasgow Academy, which was founded in 1845 and is the oldest continually independent school in Glasgow.
This cache is placed to bring people here, to remember those who have served and those who have fallen.
The cache is at N55 52.ABC, W004 16.XYZ where:
The numbers at the top left are: -XA-
The numbers at the top right are: -B--
C = The number of letters in the 1st word of the 6th line from the bottom of the memorial
Y = The second last word in the eighth line from the bottom MINUS the last word in the sixth line from the bottom
Z = The first word on the memorial MINUS the seventh line from the bottom of the memorial
The check sum for ABC is 19 and for XYZ is 8
The final has an interesting perspective of an old Glasgow building. Bring tweezers or similar as log is inside a small tube to protect it from water.
