Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment (WFR)

The Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment (29th/45th Foot), known as WFR, stood as a stalwart infantry regiment within the British Army, proudly representing Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, and Worcestershire. Born in 1970 from the fusion of the Worcestershire Regiment and the Sherwood Foresters, the regiment's legacy echoed through time.

From its inception, the regiment embraced challenges with valor. Amidst the Troubles, it stood firm, undertaking a tour in Northern Ireland in 1972. Transitions led it to Berlin and Shackleton Barracks at Ballykelly before returning to Meanee Barracks in Colchester. With each move, the regiment carried forth its tradition of excellence, culminating in its relocation to Peninsula Barracks at Hemer in 1979.

Buttons Ltd Birmingham

Buttons Ltd. Birmingham, a renowned button maker, traces its roots back to 1907 when it was founded. By 1913, the company had expanded to three sites across Birmingham, namely Portland Street, Worstone Lane, and Clissold Street, specializing in the production of buttons, buckles, and stampings. Their craftsmanship extended beyond Birmingham, with some buttons crafted in London. Offering not just buttons but also dies and machinery for button-making, the company's trademarks, featuring three domes and crossed swords, became synonymous with quality. In 1992, Buttons Ltd. Birmingham merged with Francis Sumner Engineering Co., marking a new chapter in its esteemed history.
