It is all about The Award of the Croix De Guerre to the 6th Battalion.

The award was commemorated by the following dress Regulations: The C de G flash was worn on both sleeves. A lanyard in the colours of the C de G was worn over the left shoulder (purchased by the Battalion) and the Colours display the insignia of the C de G.
