organization of the British armed forces
 
Hi,
I'm trying to figure out how the British Armed forces are organized.
So far, I understand each geographical region is under the the responsibility of a division, each division area being split into brigades' areas of responsibilities. Regardless of this geographical organization, there are Corps (Engineers, Signals, etc) to which belon g units (mainly regiments or squadrons) that are scattered accross the country, and they depend administratively from the closest brigade and the closest division.
Do I get it right so far?

Well... hum... thank you :confused:
I was expecting a "yes, you are right", or a "no, you didn't get it".
I just spent 3 days reading the british army site, and I have trouble figuring out why some brigades are committed to administrative tasks, some not. What's the clue? Is it in the name of the bde or division?

ok, what does the (IK) in front of division or regiments' names mean?
- 1st (UK) Armoured division
- 3rd (UK) Div HQ & Signal Regiment

I admit my question wasn't obvious, I meant: why do some units have (UK) in their name and others don't?
