Henry Gordon Francis Larsen

While it is certain that Henry Gordon Francis Larsen was in service in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, I am not certain that he was in fact Danish born as his family name could suggests.

Danish born servicemen in the Royal Australian Air Force

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.

B.160 Copenhagen/Kastrup - The Summer of 1945

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.
