Excerpt from The Sherwood Foresters in the Great War, 1914-1919, 1/8th Battalion
To me, perhaps naturally, the most interesting part of the book is the early chapters. From the time, in 1911, when I took over the command Of what, I was informed by a Staff Officer qualified to... know, was the best Territorial Brigade in the Kingdom, I was a firm believer in the Territorial Force. But I hardly think that the most hardened Optimist would at that time have thought it possible for a Territorial Division to mobilise and march complete with equipment and Transport to its Mobilisation area on the sixth day after receiving the order Mobilise. The amount of work done by Battalions and Companies was marvellous and only those who experienced it can have an idea of what it meant.
