The British Infantry Division of World War 2 was very similar to the American division in size and support units but it was structured a little different.
A typical American infantry division would be made up of 3 infantry regiments, 3 field artillery battalions(1 more was added later) and support units. The infantry regiments were sub-divided into 3 battalions---thus the name "Triangle division".
The British infantry division was made up of Brigades, which consisted of battalions. The British divided their Regiments up into battalions and distributed each battalion(maybe 3 or as many as 10) to various other divisions and theaters. The reason for this is that regiments were formed from one geographical area and they learned during World War 1 that if a regiment was decimated, then those back at home would suffer tremendously.

In the US Army there were four regiments to a division in WWI. There were two brigades in a division, and each brigade had two regiments. US divisions were huge compared to those of every other major combatant, with about 26,000 men. The British system was more complicated. They have a number of regiments with a long and distinguished lineage and history. But British regiments did not fight as formations. Each British regiment has a number of battalions. In the British system three battalions, almost always from different regiments, were brigaded together. Three such brigades made up a British infantry division.
