    I found this on Stridingedge.net:

    "Looking across Pike de Bield to the Scafells. Further along from Pike de Bield is a large cairn (marked 'memorial cairn' on 2nd edition Wainwright's), the brass plaque on it says 'Gerry Charnley 1929 - 1982."

    It is strange he did not take a photo of it. My Wainwright is a first edition re-issue.

    The plaque disappeared a few years ago.

    Ah, so on this occasion it wasn't just me being blind. At least the cairn is still in good condition.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.
