The Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters Regiment (29th/45th Foot) was an infantry regiment of the British Army, part of the Prince of Wales' Division. It was formed in 1970 through the amalgamation of two other regiments:

  • The Worcestershire Regiment (29th Regiment of Foot / 36th Regiment of Foot)
  • The Sherwood Foresters (Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment)

The regiment served as the county regiment of the following counties:

  • Derbyshire
  • Nottinghamshire
  • Worcestershire

In 2004, as part of the restructuring of the infantry, it was announced that the Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters would be amalgamated with the 22nd (Cheshire) Regiment and the Staffordshire Regiment to form the new Mercian Regiment.

In July 2005, the 1st Battalion moved to Cavalry Barracks, Hounslow as a public duties battalion, where it, amongst other duties, provided the Queen's Guard. In August 2007, the regiment was renamed as the 2nd Battalion, Mercian Regiment (Worcesters and Foresters), before moving to Northern Ireland in the light infantry role in 2008
