Remembrance Sunday services on Great Gable summit
In 1924 the Fell and Rock Climbing Club (FRCC) dedicated a war memorial near the summit of Great Gable (2,949 feet) above Wasdale Head in the Lake District to commemorate the names of the members who had fallen during the Great War of 1914 - 1918. This took the form of a bronze tablet inscribed with the relevant names of fallen comrades. The dedication was by poet, author, climber and walkers Geoffrey Winthrop Young in front of a crowd of 500 walkers and climbers.
