Glossary - W

War Establishment (WE): a detailed listing of the authorized strength of a formation or unit, detailing numbers and ranks of personnel, numbers of types of vehicles, equipment or ammunition, etc. The American Term is "Table of Organization and Equipment" or TO&E. Not to be confused with an Order of Battle.

The term is sometimes shortened to just "establishment" which C.P. Stacey describes (Official History of the Canadian Army in the Second World War, Vol I, p. 49)  as "'the authorized composition of a unit' expressed in numbers and ranks of personnel and numbers and types of weapons and transport."
