Unit History: Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment)

Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment) The Regiment was officially formed in 1881 when the 45th and 95th Regiments of Foot were amalgamated as part of the Childers Reforms but the Regiment can trace its history back 140 years prior to this date.

In 1731 off the Florida coast the British brig ‘Rebecca’ was boarded by a Spanish patrol boat. The Spanish commander Julio Leon Fandino, proceeded to cut off the left ear of Captain Robert Jenkins who was accused of smuggling. The incident was perceived as a great insult and along with other ‘Spanish Depredations upon British Subjects’ led to ‘The War of Jenkin’s Ear’ (1739-41). It was under these tensions that the 45th Regiment of Foot was formed. It was initially raised by Daniel Houghton as the 56th Regiment of Foot but rose in rank to the 45th in 1748 after the disbandment of several Regiments.
In 1755 the Regiment was deployed to Canada and saw its first actions in North America during the Seven Years War (1754–1763) fighting the French as part of General Wolfe’s force at the Capture of the Louisborg Fortress (1758) and the city of Quebec (1759). The Regiment remained in Canada and was once again in action at the outbreak of the American War of Independence (1775-83) fighting at the Battles of Long Island, Philadelphia, Brandywine Creek and Germantown. The 45th was reduced to just 100 Officers and men after two years of fighting and returned to England to rebuild. While billeted in Nottingham the citizens successfully petition King George III to add ‘Nottinghamshire’ to the Regiment’s name in return for the recruitment of 300 local men. The Regiment was deployed twice to the West Indies in 1786 and again in 1795, both times suffering heavy losses due to disease.

The Regiment served during the Napoleonic Wars ((1803–1815) fighting at the Battles Rolica, Vimiera, Talavera, Busaco, Fuentes d'Onor, Ciudad Rodrigo, Badajos, Salamanca, Vittoria, Pyrenees, Nivelle, Orthes, Tolouse and Peninsula. The Regiment went on to serve during the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-26) and a detachment of 100 men were involved in the ‘battle’ of Bossenden Wood (1838) suppressing a small riot of Kentish labourers.

In 1843 the 45th served in South Africa during the Cape Frontier Wars (1811-1858), when the native Xhosa tribes rose in armed rebellion against continuing European rule and the Orange River Expedition. In 1865 the Regiment successfully petitioned to have the title of ‘Sherwood Foresters’ added and became the 45th (Nottinghamshire) (Sherwood Foresters) Regiment of Foot. In 1868 the Regiment took part in the Expedition to Abyssinia against the Ethiopian Emperor Tewodros II who had imprisoned several missionaries and two representatives of the British government and the expedition was described as ‘one of the most expensive affairs of honour in history.’ The Regiment also served during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

The 95th was raised in 1823 at Winchester and was posted to Malta from 1824 to 1829. All British Regiments without royal titles were awarded county titles in order to aid recruitment from that area and the 95th became association with Derbyshire and re-titled 95th (Derbyshire) Regiment of Foot. The Regiment then moved to Corfu and Cephalonia, Greece before garrison duties in Cork, Ireland from 1835. From 1840 to 1847 the 95th was deployed to Ceylon and then Hong Kong returning to England in 1850. The Regiment did not see its first action until the Crimean War (1853–1856) fighting at the Battle of Alma and Inkerman as well as the Capture of Sevastopol. A brief posting to Ireland followed in 1856 before being deployed to India to quell the Indian Rebellion of 1857, fighting at the Capture of Gwalior and Pouree. It was during the Capture of Kotah the Regiment adopted a fighting ram, found tethered in a temple, as its mascot. The Regiment then returned to England and served home service from 1870 to 1881.

In 1881 these two Regiments were amalgamated as part of the Childers Reforms, which restructured the British army infantry Regiments into a network of multi-battalion Regiments of two regular and two militia battalions, to form the Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment). The newly formed Regiment went on to served during the First Sudan War (1882-4), the North West Frontier Operations (1897-98) fighting during the Tirah Expedition, the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899–1902) and two World Wars. In 1970 the Regiment was amalgamated with the Worcestershire Regiment to form the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment. In 2004 it was further amalgamated with the Cheshire Regiment and the Staffordshire Regiment to form the new Mercian Regiment.

Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment) during WW1

Since 1815 the balance of power in Europe had been maintained by a series of treaties. In 1888 Wilhelm II was crowned ‘German Emperor and King of Prussia’ and moved from a policy of maintaining the status quo to a more aggressive position. He did not renew a treaty with Russia, aligned Germany with the declining Austro-Hungarian Empire and started to build a Navy rivalling that of Britain. These actions greatly concerned Germany’s neighbours, who quickly forged new treaties and alliances in the event of war. On 28th June 1914 Franz Ferdinand the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated by the Bosnian-Serb nationalist group Young Bosnia who wanted pan-Serbian independence. Franz Joseph's the Austro-Hungarian Emperor (with the backing of Germany) responded aggressively, presenting Serbia with an intentionally unacceptable ultimatum, to provoke Serbia into war. Serbia agreed to 8 of the 10 terms and on the 28th July 1914 the Austro-Hungarian Empire declared war on Serbia, producing a cascade effect across Europe. Russia bound by treaty to Serbia declared war with Austro-Hungary, Germany declared war with Russia and France declared war with Germany. Germany’s army crossed into neutral Belgium in order to reach Paris, forcing Britain to declare war with Germany (due to the Treaty of London (1839) whereby Britain agreed to defend Belgium in the event of invasion). By the 4th August 1914 Britain and much of Europe were pulled into a war which would last 1,566 days, cost 8,528,831 lives and 28,938,073 casualties or missing on both sides.
