The Regimental mascot

Our local infantry regiment was The Sherwood Foresters(Notts and Derby Regiment). It was formed in1881 and continued qith its headquarters in Derby until 1970 when it became part of the Mercian Regiment. Most local recruits joined the Foresters and this postcard from 1911 was published by Raphael Tuck & Co.
