This section lists the gallantry awards given to members of the 6th Airborne Division and their attached units during the Normandy campaign. At present, I only have information for the 6th Airborne Division and Glider Pilot Regiment, so I'd be most grateful for any details of awards given to the 1st and 4th Special Service Brigades, 38 and 46 Groups of the RAF, the 5th Battalion The Black Watch, the 13th/18th Royal Hussars, the 1st Belgian Brigade and the Princess Irene Brigade.
