The following pages are intended to explain the organisation of a UK Division, specifically the 3rd Infantry Division in 1944 and explain how the First Battalion, The Suffolk Regiment, fitted into that structure. We will go into some detail here but cannot, by virtue of space, answer all potential questions. Click on the '1/Suffolk Regiment' below to see the structure of an Infantry Battalion.
This page shows the 3 main fighting Brigades that belonged to the Division. As an Infantry Division, these Brigades are composed of three Battalions each, with further information available on the 'Infantry Battalion' page. Click on the link 'Divisional Troops' to see the supporting arms that assisted these infantry
