Brothers in Arms

British Sherman tanks advancing from Nijmegen in the Netherlands towards the German town of Kleve, c1945

Follow the story of the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry, an elite British tank regiment whose men fought their way across North-West Europe in the final stages of the Second World War.

The Sherwood Rangers finished the Second World War with more battle honours than any other single unit in the British Army. Veterans of the North Africa campaign, they were at the forefront of the fighting from D-Day on 6 June 1944 until Victory in Europe (VE) Day in May 1945.

The danger and pressure they faced were immense and the casualties they suffered absolutely horrific. What helped sustain them was the astonishing collective spirit, camaraderie and bravery they demonstrated from that first day on the Normandy beaches to the very end in northern Germany.

This exhibition focuses on just eight of those remarkable men. Together, they represent a cross-section of the personalities that made the Sherwood Rangers such a celebrated and successful armoured regiment.
