Over 140,000 men served in the Regiment which lost 11,400 killed. The Regiment won 57 battle honours and 2,000 decorations, including nine Victoria Crosses. This is an original Wolseley pattern pith helmet to the Sherwood Foresters. It has its original 7 fold khaki head band 'Pagri' & vented top mount. The right side of the helmet has its original 4th Brigade Regiment formation patches on either side marked ‘IV’ on a green cloth patch. It is complete with leather sweatband and leather chinstrap.
