Unicorns - The History of the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry 1794-1899, Jonathan Hunt.
An unusual regimental history that examines the early history of the
Sherwood Rangers, when they were a volunteer Yeomanry regiment that was
only liable for service within the UK, and that hardly ever left
Nottinghamshire. Instead it was used as an early police force,

examination of the early existence of a regiment that went on to serve
in the wars of the twentieth century.
