I picked these items up a number of years back. I wonder if anyone can ID these Danish items or spread any light on them.

The woven shoulder titles and Danish Flag were worn Post WWII 1947>.

 

The embroidered title looks like a reproduction from the scans posted, most believe the English made Danmark Army Nationality titles weren't worn until after the war was over much like the Luxembourg Shoulder Titles. 

 

The Danish that joined the Allied forces was relatively a small contingent, some estimate about 1500 total since there was not a Danish Government in Exile. The Danes that enlisted in British Forces, joined Royal East Kent Rgt, Grenadier Guards, RASC, Pioneer Corps and Home Guards, while others served with RAF, Royal Norwegian Air Force and Navy. 50 or so were transferred to Inter-Allied Commando and Special Forces Units. SOE used the Commandos for operations conducted in Denmark.  

 

Most of the Danish Army spent the war in Sweden and only returned after Denmark had been Liberated.

 

The only Danmark Shoulder Title that i'm aware of being worn during WWII, was by RAF Volunteers.

What you have is a mix of Danish and UK. The buttons are UK AAC army air corps.The Danish are from the Guards Hussars Regiment, most likely from the same guy, Major J.P Jensen
