Robert Christian Bostrøm is in service in the Royal Air Force Administrative and Service Duties Branch during the Second World War. Born in Edinburgh by Danish parents, I have yet to confirm that he was in fact himself Danish citizen.
Niels Peter William Pedersen served in RAF Bomber Command during the Second World War. He is killed in February 1945.
In 1943 the pilot and author Clauson Kaas publishes a book entitled Danish aviators in the air. An appendix lists all then trained army and navy pilots. During the period 1935-1939 a total of 26 pilots are trained in the small Danish navy air service. I have been looking into the path taken by these pilots during the following years.
Group Captain John Edgar "Johnnie" Johnson, top-scoring fighter ace in the European theatre, begins and ends his best-selling memories, "Wing Leader", in Copenhagen. This is due to the fact that he is the commanding officer of B.160 Copenhagen/Kastrup in May-June 1945. But it is not only the presence of this well-known pilot that makes the airport an interesting place.
