Gazette Issue 41687 published on the 17 April 1959 states the following:

"Flight Lieutenant P. E. IPSEN (117791), no retention of rank. 16th Feb. 1959."

Could anyone explain, what this mean?

P E Ipsen which i presume is identical to Preben E Ipsen the later managing director of Falck ambulance flying service and flying instructor at a RAF flying course ("brush up") for Danish air force pilots in the fall of 1945.

Any further information on this man would be appreciated as well.
