Letters or numbers
- Numbers, please. I think that's the normal convention. Why was it changed? Folks at 137 21:34, 20 March 2007 (UTC)
In addition to the above, some other notes to ponder, that I have just amended:
- "Holland" is a province, not a country. The country is "the Netherlands."
- The correct designation is "1st Canadian Army" according to the official histories published by the Canadian Army itself. All other national formations reversed the order, i.e. "British 2nd Army". This has been corrected.
- Walcheren Island wasn't the only fighting - the entire Battle of the Scheldt was ignored; I've added reference to this campaign, which was just as crucial as the invasion of the island itself.22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:05, 8 July 2008 (UTC)
British Army Group
I think that the article should clarify that this was a British field headquarters that yes was under the command of Shaef and had other nationalities fighting within it but was still British. For example like the Eighth Army. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:23, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
Role in Operation Cockade
The 21st Army Group had a role in Operation Cockade as well. For that operation the order of battle was 1st Canadian (Real), 2nd British(Real), 6th British (Fictional).Graham1973 (talk) 14:42, 8 June 2011 (UTC)
