Sometimes the man in the centre is not the most interesting person in a photograph. This was certainly true, when I was looking at a photograph of Field Marshal Montgomery returning to his aircraft at B.160 Copenhagen/Kastrup on 12 May 1945. In my research the most interesting man in the photograph is the man on the far right. This is Flt Lt Vagn Christensen.
A large number of especially young Danish born men entered air service via the United States. Many of these were sailors having left Denmark before the German occupation. Most of these men volunteered for the Norwegian forces training in Camp Little Norway in Canada, but some enlisted in the USAAF.
