I am - as one might sucpect - most interested in this records' information on a Danish squadron. At first hand the extent of information on the Danish squadron.
I know that it was a Danish wish in 1942-43 to establish a Danish unit/squadron. The Danish Legation recommended this to Foreign Office as well as the Air Ministry according to the memoires of the then legate, count Reventlow. But the number of pilots was too low and the variation on their training was to big.
