Knud Rosenauer Hauch is in service in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. He is promoted to Squadron Leader and is awarded the OBE.
Milan Martiny volunteers for the South African Air Force, but is killed during his training to become a pilot on 6 September 1943.
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.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Just as the Danish community in London gathered around the Christmas tree in 1942, families gather to celebrate Christmas in these very days 75 years on.
