The British Setup is dictated by Grand Strategy and my own limits. With the BEF limited to 3 ground factors, there is not much sense in keeping the Army home. I do place 3 3-4 Inf’s in London just because I once didn’t. Once. Just once.
The setup is designed to quickly attack Libya and to be able to turn around quickly in the event that Lebanon-Syria goes Vichy. Again, getting bogged down fighting in North Africa is something I try to avoid as the British player. It’s expensive and takes up SR resources. Until the landings in Sicily and Italy I really want to avoid spending money in North Africa. Again in this game, Britain/France will not DOW Italy.
Not show here are the standard Gibraltar and Malta setups.
