Does anybody know if there is a list of gallantry awards for British servicemen involved in the 1956 Suez campaign?

The General Service Medal and Naval GSM both have "Near East" Clasp for the Suez Crisis. Not to be confused with the "Canal Zone" clasp for earlier Suez service.

As to a comprehensive list, I don't know.

Gallantry awards were gazetted.

For Naval gallantry awards

For army and air force, scroll to the bottom of the above list and you'll find a link to the LG issue for the operation.
