  • The 42nd (East Lancashire) Infantry Division was an infantry division of the British Army. The division was raised in 1908 as part of the Territorial Force (TF), originally as the East Lancashire Division, and was redesignated as the 42nd (East Lancashire) Division on 25 May 1915. It was the first TF division to be sent overseas during the First World War. The division fought at Gallipoli, in the Sinai desert and on the Western Front in France and Belgium. Disbanded after the war, it was reformed in the Territorial Army (TA), in the Second World War it served as the 42nd (East Lancashire) Infantry Division with the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) and fought in Belgium and France before being evacuated at Dunkirk. The division was later reformed in the United Kingdom and, in November 1941, was converted into the 42nd Armoured Division, which was disbanded in October 1943 without serving overseas. A 2nd Line duplicate formation, the 66th (2nd East Lancashire) Division, was created when the Territorials were doubled in both world wars. The division was disbanded during the war but was reformed in the TA in 1947 after the Second World War. Beckett 2008 says that TA units that were in suspended animation were formally reactivated on 1 January 1947, although no personnel were assigned until commanding officers and permanent staff had been appointed in March and April 1947. From December 1955, the division was placed on a lower establishment, for home defence purposes only. On 1 May 1961, the division was merged with North West District to become 42nd Lancashire Division/North West District. (en)
  • La 42e division d'infanterie (East Lancashire) (42nd (East Lancashire) Infantry Division) est une division d'infanterie de la British Army. Elle est créée en 1908 au sein de la Territorial Army, sous le nom d' East Lancashire Division, avant d'être réorganisée sous la forme de la 42nd (East Lancashire) Division le 25 mai 1915. C'est la première division de la Territorial Army à être envoyée en dehors du territoire britannique lors de la Première Guerre mondiale. Elle combat d'abord lors de la bataille de Gallipoli, avant d'être envoyée dans le désert du Sinaï puis sur le front occidental, en France et en Belgique. Lors de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, avec à sa tête le général William Holmes, elle appartient à la British Expeditionary Force (force expéditionnaire britannique) qui combat en France et en Belgique lors de la bataille de France, avant d'être évacuée à Dunkerque. Par la suite, elle est réorganisée en Grande-Bretagne en novembre 1941 et devient la 42e division blindée, finalement dissoute en octobre 1943 sans avoir combattu. Lors des deux guerres mondiales, une autre formation de l'East Lancashire est créée en réserve (la 66e division). La division réapparaît au sein de la Territorial Army en 1947 après la Seconde Guerre mondiale. À partir de décembre 1955, la division est placée dans la catégorie des unités dites Lower Establishment, consacrées uniquement à la défense du territoire britannique. Le 1er mai 1961, elle est fusionnée avec le North West District pour devenir la 42nd Lancashire Division/North West District. (fr)
