Erik Simonsen

(1917 -)

Erik Simonsen is one of the Danes who is in service in the Royal Norwegian Air Force during the Second World War. I have very little information on him, though. [1]

On 1 December 1939, an Erik Simonsen born on 14 May 1917 arrives in New York from Bergen, Norway, on-board SS STAVANGERFJORD. His profession is stated as hotel worker. He stays in New York until 28 November 1941. He returns to U.S. from Canada on 7 January 1942. [2]

On 13 Oct 1942 an Erik Simonsen who is likely to be the same man enlists in the U.S. Army in New York City. [3]
