Geocache Description:


Originally, Victoria Park was within the Burgh of Partick. The war memorial, a granite column 27 feet high, was dedicated to the 1000 men from Partick who died durring the First World War. It was unveiled on 22 November 1922 at a ceremony attended by over 10,000 people. The cost of £2000 was raised by public subscription. After the Second World War, a new inscription was added.

 

This is a simple offset multi. Visit the waypoint to see the plaque on the bridge to get the numbers.

The cache can be found at N55 52.ABC W004 19.DEF

Only counting the capital letters on the plaque, use the code A=1 B=2 etc, to calculate the following

A= 9th letter of the plaque

B= 7th letter of the plaque, minus 1

C= 10th letter of the plaque, minus 1

D= 7th letter of the plaque, minus 1

E= 9th letter of the plaque

F= 10th letter of the plaque,minus 1

CHECKSUM =34

The final is NOT within the park.

If anybody would like to expand the War Memorial Series, please do. I would ask that you let Just-us-Two know first by filling in the contact form on the War Memorial Series website warmemorialseries.co.uk https://warmemorialseries.co.uk/ so they can keep track of the War Memorial numbers and names to avoid duplication.
