Regarding countries other than Great Britain, IIRC:
Canada -- Three infantry divisions, two armoured divisions, two armoured brigades, and a para battalion saw action in Italy and NW Europe. Also lost an infantry battalion at Hong Kong.
New Zealand -- 2 to 3 divisions, of which one was in action at any time (may be wrong about that). Action in Italy, and ... ?
South Africa -- a handful of divisions, but IIRC only one was in action at any given time. Action in E Africa, N Africa, and Italy.
... and there were about 3 (?) infantry divisions formed from East and West African troops. Action in E Africa and India / Burma.
