Sten Lindhard is working as civil engineer in Birmingham, when the Germans occupy Denmark in 1940. He volunteers for Royal Air Force in 1942 and advances to Flight Lieutenant in No. 149 Squadron. He is killed in action in 1944.
Eiler Villy Andersen is one of the Danes who volunteers for the Royal Canadian Air Force. His aircraft is shot down over Germany and he is injured and taken prisoner in March 1944.
During the Second World War not only Danish men and women were in the air. Free Danes abroad donated £ 40,113 for a number of Spitfires flown by Danish pilots in Royal Air Force squadrons.
About three years ago I carried out a search on the World War 2 Nominal Roll website (of Australia) finding 38 individuals born in Denmark who served in the Royal Australian Air Force during the Second World War. Ever since I have been researching these individuals trying to find out how many of these who were in fact still Danish when the enlisted in the Australian forces.
