Non-Danish "Danish" Aircrew

During the course of my research on Danish pilots and aircrew I have come across a number of people who turned out not to meet the criteria to be included on this site as Danish. Some of these people are mentioned as Danish by other sources, others have been researched because they hold Danish names.

No. 234 Squadron - A 'Danish' Squadron

During the Second World War, a large number of Danish pilots were in British or Norwegian air service. Though many were accepted in one of the Norwegian squadron, 234 (Madras Presidency) Squadron is by far the most 'Danish' of all squadrons of (or associated to) the Royal Air Force. In all nine Danish pilots and three Spitfires is in 234 service.
