Hi everyone! This is a query I've wanted to submit for a while now. I'd be delighted if an answer was available. I've seen American, Argentine, Brazilian, Chinese, German, Greek, Japanese, Mexican, Peruvian, Polish, Portuguese, Thai - you name the country - recorded as serving in the British military, often in Europe, during the war. Have the numbers of Non-Commonwealth personnel in the British Armed Forces ever been estimated? It's fascinating stuff, yet seems to be one of the more neglected topics. Many of them were of British descent, but there were also people like: *Lieutenant Koichi Kinoshita, Royal Army Ordnance Corps. *Nicky Varanand, a Thai prince in the RAF who operated over Europe. *Flying Officer Sebastian Bernard de Mier, a Mexican-American in the RAF. *Svend Korup, a Dane in the Royal Artillery. How many were there? I've scoured the 'net for rough guesses, but only came up with an estimate of 4,000 Argentines. Would be grateful for any replies. Thanks in advance!
