  1. R.V. Jones in his book MOST SECRET WAR. writes this about Thomas Sneum,

    It might be thought that after all this Sneum would become the national hero that he deserved to be. But he found himself could shouldered by those in control of Denmark at the end of the war, perhaps for this very reason Some of them had been equivocal so long as Germany was in the ascendant and the patriotic record would bear no comparison with that of Sneum who had committed himself to resistance as soon as the Germans invaded Denmark . I would have endangered their positions if Sneum came back, and they were able to make play of his imprisonment in Brixton ( prison); he ultimately left Denmark to live in Switzerland. If they survive the men who go first are rarely popular with those who wait for the wind to blow.

  2. By the way it was R.V.Jones who used his influence with the R.A.F. to allow Sneum to be in the first R.A.F. squadron and be the first too land at Kastrup Airport after the war, he thought it would be a small, compensation for the way he had been treated

  3. Yes – I own Jones’ book, and made a citation in one of my previous posts about Sneum.

  4. Yes Thomas Sneum was badly treated by both sides in the war the Danes as well as the Brits, but so were many others, his memory like so many other will slowly fade. It would be nice if somebody was to write a book about these people. It would be nice to see another book about (Churchill Banden) another group of young Danish patriots whose deeds are I am certain are fading, love of country and patriotism are essential if a country is too survive.

  7. Det er herligt at læse om sådanne mandfolk, som går ud på vingen, og hælder benzin på, når flyet er ved at løbe tør. Som siger fra. Den bog skal jeg have.

    Mennesker som Toldstrup, der gemte en USA medalje, som kun 13 mennesker på jorden havde fået, i en cigaræske, og som ikke ville i Kraks blå.

    Tak til disse store mennesker, af hvilke der desværre bliver stadig færre.

    Børge. Proff. Soldat emeritus (for længe længe siden.)
