  3. Hi CL1,
    The link you shared are the war establishment of the units served under 21 army group. But I want to know the name of these units and their superior units.

    It is near impossible, given composition of each Corps alone repeatedly shifts throughout the campaign.

    Divs reorganise etc.

    A mate compiled one on a weekly basis and admitted even then he had plenty of reservations as to its accuracy.

    The most common and readily available resource for WWII British orders of battle is H.F. Joslen, Orders of Battle Second World War, 1939-1945 (2 vols., HMSO). This is available at many large research libraries in the UK and a few in the United States as well. It covers assignments and organization of divisions and independent brigades down to battalion level. For smaller and non-divisional units and non-combat arms you will have to look elsewhere.

  7. Thanks. I have this copy. I am looking smaller and non-divisional units and non-combat arms units.
