HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1816W
Sir E. Brocklebank

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give a list of the Allied nations, stating in each case the date of becoming allied to this country and indicating those who have sent troops into action.

Lord Dunglass

I am advised that the term "the allied nations" has no precise meaning in relation to the present war. Many of the United Nations are not linked to this country by any formal alliance, but have nevertheless been co-belligerent with the United Kingdom in the present war. Other States have formal treaties of alliance with His Majesty but have not been co-belligerent with the United Kingdom. Armed forces of the following members of the United Nations have been in action against the enemy:

  • Australia.
  • Belgium.
  • Brazil.
  • Canada.
  • China.
  • Czechoslovakia.
  • Denmark.
  • Egypt.
  • Ethiopia.
  • France.
  • Greece.
  • India.
  • Luxembourg.
  • Mexico.
  • Netherlands.
  • New Zealand.
  • Norway.
  • Philippines.
  • Poland.
  • South Africa.
  • U.S.S.R.
  • United Kingdom.
  • U.S.A.
  • Yugoslavia.
