The British Army's 56th Infantry Brigade was originally a Kitchener's Army brigade within 19th (Western) Division during the First World War. Later during the Second World War it was reformed on 15 February 1944 in the United Kingdom. The Brigade took part in the Invasion of Normandy, where it formed the right flank of the 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division on Gold Beach. It remained attached to the 50th Division until the 10th, after which it was attached to the 7th Armoured Division until 12 June, reverting then to 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division. It came under command of the 59th (Staffordshire) Infantry Division in early August 1944. It was eventually permanently attached to the 49th (West Riding) Infantry Division on 20 August 1944.show more
