Sample text

By early 1945 the other divisions had each given up their second GIRs and received a second PIR. The capabilities of the glider-borne units in US and British airborne divisions were drastically different. Even with two GIRs, the US airborne division fielded only four glider battalions, each of three companies with two platoons each, for a total of 12 companies and 24 platoons – six companies and 12 platoons in a single GIR. In early 1945, with the addition of a third battalion, and third platoons to the companies, the one-GIR division had nine glider-borne companies with 27 platoons.

The support company possessed an HQ, and signals, transport, administrative, pioneer, reconnaissance, and mortar platoons (4x 3in mortars). The rifle company had a headquarters, support section (2x 3in mortars), and four rifle platoons, each with three sections. Platoon weapons included three Bren guns, and a 2in mortar and PIAT antitank projector with the HQ element. From 1944 the support company’s four mortars and the rifle companies’ eight mortars were consolidated into a mortar group, with two platoons of six tubes each, for more effective fire control.
