My guess is most of this information is buried somewhere in an archive in Israel. I don't think anyone has ever done an exhaustive work on this conflict so most scholars simply parrot the use of commander names used during and right after the conflict by authors who originally wrote about it and don't dig deep enough to find the actual unit designations. The information is probably there somewhere, but someone would need to find it and publish it.

Course I'm merely speculating and perhaps its already been published and I'm simply unaware of it. I'm speculating based on my experiences back in the late 90's when I did two Israel scenarios for TOAW, one about the 56 conflict and the other the about the 67 conflict. I found finding any original source material very problematic and used books like the one written by Moshe Dayan and used what little OOB data I found in those.

I also had help from a guy in Israel who had access to source data I did not, so that is what leads me to believe searching the archives there might help.

You might also try looking online for individual bio's or wiki pages for the commanders themselves. Perhaps their bio's have unit designations mentioned in them?

There are many versions of OOB everywhere
It is probably because neither Israel nor Egypt has published an official list
