    Default Peter Frederik Fischer, DFC (156830, RAFVR)

    This man is by some (Danish) sources supposed to be Danish, but is in fact a natural born British subject according to a London Gazette entry. He is, though, very likely the son of parents born in Denmark.

    I have not been able to find much information on his service other than promotions and that he apparently was awarded the DFC at some point between 25 Mar 1944 and 25 September 1945.

    Se more on: http://www.danishww2pilots.dk/profiles.php?id=24

    Would anyone be able to tell, where he was posted or the like?

    Regards,

    Mikel, Use the family name Fischer and dates between 1 May and 31 May 45 and you should get an entry relating to your man. If not the award of his DFC is contained in: Fourth Supplement (LG 37094 dated 25 May 45) to LG dated 22 May 44. Regards, Terry

    Just an update to add confirmed information on Fischers nationality. He was born in London by Danish parents and as such Danish by birth. Born in England he was also considered natural born British Subject by British authorities. He later became US citizen.
