You described how the two divisions of the BEF with 'motor' in their name had been stripped of certain assets. That stripping left them almost identical to the 'infantry' divisions alongside whom they operated. You were adding more evidence that my comment was accurate. You offered no evidence to support you claim that what I wrote was "incorrect".Knouterer wrote: ↑23 Sep 2018 18:08You wrote: "the two motor divisions with the BEF in France in 1940 were tasked and roled no differently than the 'standard' infantry divisions alongside whom they served "
I just pointed out that there were no motor divisions with the BEF in France.
And you have still yet to provide evidence that they performed tasks and roles in France/Belgium that were not doctrinally assigned to them - whether assets had been stripped or not. It's just your speculation that they were doing something not assigned to them doctrinally.
MarkNote: It is noted that the infantry element of three TA divisions initially sent to continue training were also tasked with manual labour duties which would not be included in their doctrinal template. However, when asked to perform operational tasks, they were tasked with standard infantry tasks; the 23rd Motor Division being tasked no differently to the 12th Infantry Division despite both lacking equipment and such like to the same degree.
