    Lotus7,
    Many thanks for posting the photo of your Father. His titles are 'Royal Artillery'. The Lincolnshire Regiment did not become Royal Lincolnshire until 1946. It's great to see the distinction 'X' for the 10th (North Lincoln) Regiment of Foot.
    Les.

    I think there some units missing from this.

    #1 The five batteries of the Royal Marine Armoured Support Group were deployed in support of the five brigade groups that landed on the British beaches.

    #2 The Combined Operations Bombardment Units

    #3 Royal Naval Commandos that formed part of the beach groups and carried ut a similar function to the US Naval engineers.

    Have you got all of these units under command and control of HQ RA 50 Div scheduled to land on D-Day?
