Emmanuel Richard Thomsen is one the Danes who volunteer for the Royal Canadian Air Force. He serves as tractor operator with the rank of Corporal.
Erik Nielsen is born in Denmark but immigrates to Australia before the war. He serves in the Volunteer Defence Corps as well as the Royal Australian Air Force before the war.
From early on the Danish volunteers in the RAF wanted to distinguish themselves as Danes in Allied service. One way of doing that was to wear a nationality shoulder title on the uniform.
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.
