Royal Marine Light Infantry 2nd Royal Marine Bn. Royal Naval Division Sidney enlisted in the Sherwood Foresters but was transferred to the Royal Marine Light Infantry. He was killed in action on 6 November 1917; he has no known grave and is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial. Sidney Bradder enlisted in the Sherwood Foresters but became one of 'Kitchener's Marines' who were transferred from the Foresters to the RMLI. Des Turner notes '600 RMLI transfers came from two regiments - 200 from the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (KOYLI) and 400 from the Sherwood Foresters. They were predominantly ex-miners and labourers, fit men wanted for their ability to dig trenches and tunnels. The 200 KOYLI recruits were transferred to Plymouth Division RMLI and were given service numbers PLY/1(S) to PLY200(S). This was also the case for the Sherwood Foresters 200 who were dispatched to Portsmouth where already 30 men were recruited and so they became PO/31(S) to PO/230(S). 200 remaining Foresters went to Chatham and were numbered CH/1 to CH/200(S).'
