But it is my father, I wish to write about.

In 1923 he was called up for military service. He was selected for the so-called working soldier corps and served in the military surveying department. He helped to survey parts of Fyn and stayed for a while in Corinth on Fyn.

He wanted to be a police officer and in 1933 he applied for a position as such in Fjends-Nørlyng herred. I found a transcript of the recommendations that he attached to the application. He did not get the position.

My father never told much about WW2, but when I was a child he showed me a small leaflet which made ​​fun of Hitler: "Here are four pigs, find the fifth pig". Unfortunately, the original has been folded so many times that it is damaged but when I was a teenager I made a copy by hand.
Also, I have found the passport that was mandatory during the German occupation of Denmark.
