Regimental March of The Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters ' Young May Moon '
ABOUT US The Chesterfield Branch WFRA has now been up and running for 9 years this year and the branch is strong with 33 members. If you would like to join us to support our cause in keeping the name of Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment alive and remembered here in Chesterfield please give your support and help to all those who have served with the Regiment and who are serving with the 2 Mercian Regiment and their families. We also welcome ex-service & serving personel from all the other Armed Forces especially those past and present in 2 Mercian and their familes. We meet the last Wednesday of every month except December when we have a social evening 7.30 at the address at the bottom of the page. For more information please contact me on either of the above details or fill in the application form attached to this site. When filling in the application form please include your address in the box provided. Our sources of information are varied; one of the key groups is the Regimental Associations Branches, who due to their membership know some guys we are trying to contact. Sadly it is apparent that some of the branches have very few Ex WFR personnel within them, some have none at all. All of the branches need the support of Ex WFR members in order to survive, without it they will inevitably have to close due to the lack of members. SHOW YOUR SUPPORT AND JOIN YOUR LOCAL BRANCH.
