This memorial commemorates the residents of Portpatrick who were killed or missing in World War I (18 names) and World War II (10 names).

Many of these memorials were erected after the First World War. After the Second World War, the names of those who died in that war were also added to the memorial.

The geocache is a straightforward offsetmulti with the final located a short walk away. 

Major Boyle ... how many letters after his name = A.

Major Robson ... how many letters after his name = B.

Final location ....N54 50.(A+2) (A-4) (A-5)  W005 06.(B+3) (B+1) (B+2)

Checksum numbers in brackets add up to 26.

 

“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 justustwo1013@gmail.com so they can keep track of the memorial numbers and names to avoid any duplication.
