15th Brigade joined the Norwegian Campaign and did not rejoin the Division until July 1940. The 5th Infantry Division saw action in the Battle of France and Belgium in 1940 including the Battle of Arras on 21 May 1940 and the Ypres-Comines Canal from 26 to 28 May 1940, and then was withdrawn, along with the rest of the British Expeditionary Force, from Dunkirk. After this it served and travelled in so many regions of the world that they became known as the Globe Trotters.
