British Army History Online - Battle Honours

Why is British Army history so hard to research online?

LAC has a nice digital collection of wartime photos online, yet the IWM has nothing but tiny thumbnails for public display/download.

DHH has full pdf versions of the official histories of the wars for free download - I see no such copies of the British official histories anywhere. I do note that the official histories have been recently reprinted, which may be part of that decision.

This website is an excellent listing of Canadian Army battle honours:

Is there as similar list somewhere that would tell me the official listing of British Army battle honours for the Second World War, listing the final tally of theatres, campaigns, battles, engagements, and chronological limits of same?
