The 6th Airborne : a bit of history
The 6th Airborne Division was an airborne infantry division of the British Army during the Second World War. Despite its name, the 6th Airborne Division was actually the second of two airborne divisions raised by the British Army during the war, the other being the 1st Airborne Division. The 6th Airborn was formed during the Second World War, in 1943, and was commanded by Major General Richard N. Gale. The division consisted of the 3rd and 5th Airborne Brigades as well as the 6th Airborne Brigade and support units. The first mission of the 6th Airborne Division was Operation Tonga on June 6, 1944, as part of the Normandy landings. It was in charge of securing the left flank of the Allied invasion during Operation Overlord. The 6th Airborn remained in Normandy for three months before being withdrawn in September. This division was mobilized again and sent to Belgium in December 1944, to help counter the German offensive in the Ardennes, the Battle of the Bulge. Their last airborne mission took place in March 1945, Operation Varsity, the second Allied airborne assault over the Rhine. After the war, the division became an imperial strategic reserve and moved to the Middle East. Initially sent to Palestine for paratrooper training, the division took on an internal security role. In Palestine, the division underwent several training changes and its size was reduced to two parachute brigades and then disbanded in 1948.
