Geocache Description:



The war memorial on the village green of Fawkham in north Kent is a rough hewn cross and plinth of Cornish granite with raised lead lettering, mounted on a York stone plinth. It is surrounded by a low chain fence.

In December 2007 War Memorials Trust offered a grant of £250 towards the cleaning of the memorial, repainting the lead lettering, straightening the posts supporting the fence and the concrete edging slabs, cleaning these slabs and re-painting the chain of the fence.



The below info can be found at the war memorial.

Total number of letters in the name of the local who gave his life in World War II, AB.
The number of men who gave their lives in the Great War, C.
How many letters after the name Lt Col V. W. Dickinson, D.
Behind the cross there are EF links in the chain between the left and middle posts (not including the bolts fixing it to the post)
