Geocache Description:


The War Memorial

The headline coordinates will take you to the main pathway to the porch of the very pretty church in St Ewe. 

The War Memorial is on the left of the path just before you reach the porch.

The memorial commemorates the servicemen and one civilian who came from the village and its surrounding area and who lost their lives in WWI and WWII.

There are Church Micro and Village Hall caches in the village which still possesses a pub but no longer has a post office or village shop.

The Cache

To find this cache you will have to do some on-line research to find the service numbers of some of the men named on the memorial.

In addition, you will need to visit the church porch near the memorial to obtain further numbers.
