Men of the High Peak by Captain W.D. Jamieson and the Officers and men of the Battalion; edited by C. Housley, subtitled ‘A History of the 1/6th Battalion The Sherwood Foresters 1914-18’. Published by Miliquest 2008.
The original history was compiled by Captain Jamieson and Colonel Robinson some time after the Great War of 1914-18. They collected together the memories of a large number of officers, NCOs and men, and from these pieced together the wartime service of the battalion. The majority of the original letters and extracts of memories used in the compilation of the book are now held in the regimental archives, together with two of the original copies of the book - only 25 copies were ever printed!
