    Please can Forum Readers advise how many corporals (two stripe) would normally have been found in a county regiment during the Normandy campaign - would the allocation be made on a regiment by regiment & ad hoc basis or would there have been a standard battalion NCO composition across the British Army?

    Thank you for any guidance received

    There is a detailed establishment here but no convenient totals so you'll have to pick through it!

    71 Corporals, of which 13 could be Lance-serjeants, which includes one each from the RAOC and ACC. The number rose to 72 when the snipers were gather in a dedicated Section.
