Guest Blogger - Lloyd Baker AKA Binrat

Nov 13, 2013 10:15:46 AM

"November 11th in a day of remembrance in Canada and Veterans day in the USA. We created the Support Our Troops coin & tag set to honour all soldiers. This week guest blogger Lloyd Baker writes about cleaning up Veterans Affairs markers. Thanks Binrat!" -CJ



The cachers “Oldsters Go Play Outside” created the Restin’ in series in Eastern Ontario, this piqued my interest in cemetery caches and since I am a member of the Canadian Forces I started to notice veterans markers both in Canada and the United States. The Veterans Affairs markers are easy to spot and I also look for signs of Regimental Badges on regular markers. At the same time I have noticed many cemeteries do not do a good job of mowing, it falls short in some areas, especially trimming and care. Time and time again I have seen damage to markers because of mowers, trimmers etc. and when they are done tall grass and dried clippings are left on the markers.While I can’t do a clean up on every marker I try to always take the time while caching in a cemetery to pull the tall grass and clean clippings from at least one or two Veteran’s markers as a way of saying thank you for your service.One memorable visit was to “Restin’ In Sacred Heart” GC1HVZQ in New Liskeard, ON, I spotted a marker and started to clean it when I noticed 7 depressions in a line next to it, further investigation showed they were also Veterans markers that were sunk into the ground over 1 inch and completely covered with grass clippings and debris. I then took the time to remove and clean as best I could each of the markers so that they could be viewed properly.I have now cleaned, uncovered markers and straightened small flags in many provinces and US States that I have come across. It is my hope that my fellow cachers would do the same on or around Remembrance Day each year or even every time they are doing a cache in a cemetery.My biggest hope is that cemeteries would take a little better care with their equipment and also lift some of the flat markers every couple of years before they just disappear.
