We have two different WWII templates, the second template below is a much simpler template both templates add the World War II Country categories to the profile pages. Its a matter of personal choice to which one you use. Enter the Country names to the Template as written above ie; British Navy, French Resistance,Australian Army, United States Marine Corps etc. Both Templates will display the correct flag and category for that Country.
