Memorials

These Monuments, which are spread across Europe on the route which the Regiment took, are dedicated to the Officers and men of the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, who gave their lives in the cause of Freedom.

All the memorial plaques were produced and generously donated by Captain David Render, “A” Squadron.
