"This armoured car was built by a resistance group at the railway factories at Frederiksværk and used in action on May 5th, 1945 in the fight against nazi groups.
Its most important task was a fight against a Danish nazi group which was entrenched in the plantation of Asserbo. The car is now in the Danish Reistance Museum"

Danish resistance fighters in 1945
Alot of danish so called resistance fighters crawled out of the woodwork when the germans were already in full retreat. Some of these "fighters" engaged in heroic activities, such as cutting danish womans hair off. Because they had slept with the germans.
Stealing private property from surrendered german soldiers, and humiliating them in other ways or form. Just saying that "resistance fighters" is the wrong term here. More like, "give me your watch, and lets cut that girls hair squads"

Danish pilot Jørgen Thalbitzer (May 22, 1920- March 29, 1943) poses on the wing of his Spitfire Vb at the British Air Force base in Coltishall. The aircraft is named "Niels Ebbesen" in honor of the national hero of Denmark, who lived in the XIV century. He was one of three Danish pilots in the service in the British Air Force.

Thalbitzer on July 23, 1942 was shot down over the territory of occupied France, made an emergency landing. Some time hiding, but was detained by German soldiers and became a prisoner of war. In captivity (in Poland) took the name of John Thomson.

In March 1943, in the company of 30 prisoners of war, Jørgen Thalbitzer escaped from a Nazi concentration camp. Thalbitzer was drowned on the night of March 28-29, 1943, while crossing from Sweden to Denmark, allegedly from a collision of a ship that was ferrying it with another ship. The body of Jørgen Thalbitzer was found in the sea a few months later and identified by name on the ring that was on the arm. Finally his urn was interred on 31 July 1943 at Vestre Cemetery, Copenhagen.
