    I am conducting some personal research into British preperations to counter a German Invasion. Although there appears to be considerable information available relating to the German Order of Battle and British static defences, I have not been able to find information relating to the British Order of Battle.

    I would be grateful if aybody could point me in the right direction or provide details of the British Order of Battle to Counter Operation Sea Lion. I am particularly interested in Unit dispositions; and Bde, Div and Corps Boundaries; and anti invasion plannning.

    Thank you for any information you can give me.

    If I recall there are some boundary diagrams from 1940 in the first part of Nigel Hamilton's Monty biography, I think its called 'the making of a General'

    Hi Tony
    Welcome to the forum, you need to be looking at southern/ south eastern command and south west command for the direct threat, beware of orders of battle
    especially those based on Olson (HMSO).
    My father who was a Royal Engineer at 3rd Training Battalion in Sept 1940 was rushed to Kent to prepare for a proposed invasion that never happened.
    Monty I beleive had Southern Command at that period.
