More on the British Expeditionary Force:
The British Expeditionary Force (BEF) was the name of the British Army in Western Europe during WWII from 2 September 1939 when the BEF GHQ was formed until 31 May 1940, when GHQ closed down. Military forces in Britain were under Home Forces command. During the 1930s, the British government planned to deter war by rearming from the very low level of readiness of the early 30s and abolished the Ten Year Rule. The bulk of the extra money went to the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force but plans were made to re-equip a small number of Army and Territorial Army divisions for service overseas.
General Lord Gort was appointed to the command of the BEF on 3 September 1939 and the BEF began moving to France on 4 September 1939. The BEF assembled along the Belgian-French border. The BEF took their post to the left of the French First Army under the command of the French 1st Army Group (1er groupe d’armées) of the North-Eastern Front (Front du Nord-est). Most of the BEF spent September 1939 to May 1940 digging field defences on the border. When the Battle of France (Fall Gelb) began on 10 May 1940, the BEF constituted 10 percent of the Allied forces on the Western Front.
