This section lists the gallantry awards given to members of the 6th Airborne Division and their attached units during the Rhine Crossing and the advance to the Baltic. 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 6th Guards Tank Brigade, 44th Royal Tank Regiment, Royal Scots Greys, 15th Scottish Reconnaissance Regiment, and the 6th and 25th Field Regiments.
