PFC Niels Tuxen was one of the young Danes serving in the US Army Air Force during the Second World War. He arrived in the United States in late 1940 and enlisted in 1942. The nature of his service is not clear, but he was trained as a radio technician before the war.
Einar Knud Alfred Andersen is in service in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, and is killed in action in 1942. He is, according to my information, born and raised in Britain, presumably, by a Danish born father. Hence, he is registrered as English.
Six Danish airmen were on operation in the skies over Normandy on 6 June 1944. Two were involved in bombing the coastal batteries, three provided fighter cover over the Channel and the beaches, and the last carried out an improvised reconnaissance mission.
Eighteen Danes served in the Royal Australian Air Force during the Second World War. For most Danes in the Allied forces their service was connected—more or less directly—to the fight for the liberation of Danish. For those in Australian service, the stakes were different, and their service was perhaps more linked to the defence of their new country from the Japanese threat.
