In their words…
The Sherwoods Foresters
Traditions, Battle Honours and the ‘Esprit De Corps’ are the things
Regiments are made of. They
promote feelings of pride, honour, trust and above all else a sense of belonging.
Men are bound together into a family by these things and the bonds are powerful and lasting. Men will fight for their Country when ordered, but they will fight for the Honour of their Regiment simply because it is their family, and they are part of it.
One such ‘Family’ was The Sherwood Foresters. The regiment of the Counties of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. Its men in the main were recruited from these two counties and this again helped make them into one of the nations most famous Regiment. (The Sherwood Foresters amalgamated with the Worcestershire Regiment in February 1970 to form The Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters regiment).
