A former Danish Army Corps pilot, Sigfred Johannes Christophersen evades Denmark with Jørgen Thalbitzer in the end of 1940. He is trained by the SIS as agent and is sent to Denmark with Thomas C.

Kaj Birksted becomes Wing Commander (flying) of the North Weald Wing on 1 August 1943. As Wing Commander he had the privilege to carry his initials as identity code on his aircraft. He is believed to have had three Spitfires carrying "KB" on the fuselage. This article is an attempt to compile information on these aircraft - at the time being with a focus on the first.
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.
