How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

This war memorial commemorates the residents of Annan who were killed or missing in World War I (212) or World War II (55). The soldier on the top was modelled on Sergeant 240634 John Mackie of the King's Own Scottish Borderers. This was quite appropriate looking at the number of KOSBs who gave their lives.


The memorial service each year is extremely well attended by the people of Annan with many societies and groups represented.

As for the cache, it is a simple multi cache which can be found at N54 59. ABC W003 16 DEF.

Use the war memorial itself and the bench on the right as you face the front of the memorial.

A - Number of barbs on the wire on the bench minus the number of soldiers on the bench

B - Number of poppies on the bench

1C - Number of horizontal bars across the bench

D - Total of the numbers on the front of the memorial minus 65

E - Number of Soldiers who fell from the Gordon Highlanders (Gord Highrs)

F - (A-C)

Check Sum: A+B+C+D+E+F = 16

The cache can be found a short walk away, next to a pleasant riverside footpath.



“If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Just-Us-Two know first at so they can keep track of the memorial numbers and names to avoid any duplication.
