Essro -> Commonwealth OOB/TOE WW2 help (5/19/2019 5:54:07 PM)

I've got mountains of info on USSR, USA, Germany, France, and even Italy and most of the minors but my Commonwealth stuff is sadly lacking.

Anybody got any good sources for British formations 1943-45? Niehorster is mostly early war and some Overlord stuff, but what I want to see is how much or how little the Brits changed their infantry and armor division structures throughout the course of the war. My sense is that the Brits changed very little over the course of the war but I need to challenge or confirm that suspicion.

Start here. Lots of stuff covering lots of time periods. There's a download for the index. http://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/p15040coll6

Just took a quick run through the index. Not a lot for what you want from what I can see. I could have missed something.

Not sure what level of detail you're looking for, but this page has good information.

http://www.warestablishments.net/

This site gives overview of late war British divisions.

Also, this part of Niehorster's site has information on late war British divisional structure (click on the units for more information.)

More. Not sure of time period for some but you can check the links and determine. This was from a simple search with Google for British TO&E WW2 so there's bunches of info out there.

The structures indeed changed. Something key to note is the progression of fielded weapons, particularly artillery. Also the numbers of 3" mortars in the infantry divisions increased significantly in 1944/45 as compared to 1940.
