WHAT HAPPENED
Due to the Second World War, clubs were split into two regional leagues - Forest were in the Southern League.
There was also a Wartime Cup as well as a Midland Cup; games competed for in the Midland Cup also counted toward the League.
Note: Final league position was decided on Goal Average instead of Points, as not all clubs were able to play a full season of games.
