About Us

The web site went online during December 2010 and is still in the process of being uploaded. Visitors returning over the next few weeks will see the continued development of these pages.

A message of support from RHQ Mercian (Nottingham): The Trustees of the WFR Museum (Sherwood Foresters Collection) of The Mercian Regiment fully support your project and endeavour to publish a book on one of our antecedent battalions, the 7th (Robin Hoods) Battalion The Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment).

Many thanks to Peter Doyle and Chris Foster for permission to use of the image of The Robin Hoods’ cap badge, taken from their excellent publication, British Army Cap Badges of the First World War, published by Shire, July 2010 (ISBN-13: 978-0747807971).

The invaluable support given by Cliff Housley, the Sherwood Foresters' Regimental Historian, is greatly appreciated.

Also, many thanks to Rachel Farrand for sharing all her research into Nottinghamshire war memorials.

TheRobinHoods is made available online by Gary Wood, James O’Hara and Stuart Wilson.
