Harald Julius Hansen is pilot in the Danish Airlines before the war. By fate, he is in London on 9. April 1940, when German troops cross the Danish border. He is attached to the Air Transport Auxiliary, but he dies from his injuries following a flying accident in 1941.
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.
