Name, Rank and Number of 21 BDS D-Day Combatants

Name, rank and service number… because these things matter.  Throughout the website, with several people contributing, some of the formal details may have been omitted where etiquette demands they should have been included.  No disrespect is intended.

Here is a full list, so far as we know, of all the non-US servicemen who landed on Omaha Beach, on D-Day or afterwards, including a list of those who were casualties. We would, of course, welcome details of other servicemen eligible to be included in the list:
