The purpose of the “Lest we forget….” series is to take a moment out of our busy lives to remember those who fell fighting for our country. This series, started by ‘Bearded Zombie’, is exclusive to Opencaching.uk
This Memorial is unusual as it is a brass plaque inside the ancient and historic Stobo Kirk (Kirk is the Scottish word for Church).
Stobo Kirk is one of the oldest Kirks in Scotland and most of the present building dates from the 12th Century, but the Kirk was founded in the 6th Century.
Access to the Memorial is not available at all times, however the Kirk is normally unlocked and open to the public during daylight hours.
In order to claim this virtual cache, you have a number of options to include with your log:
Post a picture of you or your GPSR with the memorial in the background. You do not need to be directly in front of the memorial to take this picture.
Post a picture of part of the memorial that you find interesting (for example, a relief or part of a sculpture).
Pick a name on the memorial, research and share information about the person or their life (after all, this series is all about making sure these people and the lives they lived are not forgotten). Extra kudos & respect for this, but unfortunately no extra points!
It shouldn’t need reminding, but please be respectful while claiming this virtual cache and take a moment to remember those who are named on the memorial. Please do not block the access road to the Kirk.
If you wish to extend this series, please contact Bearded Zombie.
