Training and transfer of men conscripted into the Sherwood Foresters in 1918

Been looking at how the 1917-8 conscripts were trained and posted overseas……

Quite interesting really. The 3rd and 4th Reserve Battalions in the Northeast and the 5th Reserve in Saltfleet appear to have undertaken most of the training and men were then posted onto just several different Battalions via the Infantry Base Depots.
