He was 'known to have previously had considerable income from his late father's estate in Denmark'.

Instructor's report says "This pilot is enthusiastic and rather temperamental. He is full of ideas, many of which are incorrect and he will need constant supervision ... but his flying in Class I [single-engine] is very satisfactory".

d. 29 Jan 1941, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, in the RAF Ambulance at Edzell Camp, Kincardineshire, while being moved to the operating theatre.
