Article split[edit]

As the article Structure of the British Army was way too long and contained two totally different topics I split the article in two parts: The first part, containing a long listing of all the existing British Army units by corps, precedence, etc. I left at the original article (even though that listing has nothing to do with the structure of the army). The second part that followed beneath the first contained the complete operational structure of the British Army. This second part I copied to the new and correctly named article: Operational Structure of the British Army. noclador (talk) 07:54, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

No numbers or percentages given[edit]

The BEF was approx one third of the British army. What size was the BEF? BY Dec 1940 the British Army was 2 million strong and fully equipped. No mention of this. 90.198.219.229 (talk) 14:48, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

The BEF was approx 316,000 strong at its peak in 1940 before Dunkirk.
