    I did look a little while ago at the Roll of Honour option over at: http://www.tankmuseum.org/museum-online/roll-of-honour

    It does allow you to search by regiment, however the options: "Nottinghamshire Yeomanry" and "Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry" – at least for me – currently gives:

    YOUR SEARCH FOUND NO RESULTS.

    I looked up: "Trooper F. Abbott" as he was the first on the "The Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry Regimental Association" and http://www.tankmuseum.org/museum-online/roll-of-honour/recipient/B7

    With the regimental designation there being: Nottinghamshire (Sherwood Rangers) Yeomanry - not currently an option I could see on the http://www.tankmuseum.org/museum-online/roll-of-honour

    ...drop down list.

    There's also this... http://www.tankmuseum.org/museum-online/roll-of-honour/recipient/B3317

    With the Regiment: 1st Derbyshire Yeomanry

    To always bear in mind I guess. Since KEITH C DOUGLAS whilst with the SRY in Normandy was also with (according to the site) the 1st Derbyshire Yeomanry. Albeit... (CWGC has 2nd Derbyshire Yeomanry)

    Captain DOUGLAS, KEITH CASTELLAIN - CWGC: Casualty
    Service Number 170611
    Died 09/06/1944 - Aged 24

    2nd Derbyshire Yeomanry
    Royal Armoured Corps

    attd. Nottinghamshire Yeomanry
    Royal Armoured Corps

    Son of Keith Sholto Douglas and Marie Josephine Douglas, of Bexhill-on-Sea, Sussex. A noted War Poet. Exhibitioner of Merton College, Oxford, where he was a student of Edmund Blunden.

    On the "Fighting Through Podcast" there are a couple of recent audio interviews here: 27 Bennett & Cheall WWII

    With Capt Stanley Perry, who was in the British tank regiment the Sherwood Rangers and saw a lot of action in Normandy and Germany. He survived battles, bombs and booby traps to tell of his amazing exploits some 75 years later.

    Additionally there are a number of pictures and a bit of youtube video.
