    Default No 1 Sqadron question - Danish pilots

    In April 1944 three Danish pilots are transferred from No. 234 Squadron to No. 1 Squadron (Vagn Christensen, Kjeld C.J. Pedersen and Erik Flohr Jacobsen). The latter is killed during operations on 22 May 1944, cf.

    I have not been able to determine the end date of service at No. 1 Squadron for Vagn Christensen and Kjeld Pedersen. Vagn Christensen states in an article that he is attached to a special unit of 12 Spitfires designated for the liberated Denmark at some point before 5 May 1945. Only Spitfire squadron to be based in Denmark just after the liberation is No. 41 Squadron. He is indeed in Denmark few days after the liberation. I know that Kjeld Pedersen ends RAF service in No. 26 Squadron in Lübeck, Germany, from 10 Oct. 1945.

    Thanks in advance.

    Any No 1 Sqn experts out there? If possible, I'd like to have a guestimated end date of posting before ordering the ORB :-)
