Danish Lager around WW II

A couple of random newspaper items vaguely of the topic of Danish beer around the war years. Just a few odd bits I didn't really know what to do with.

This is odd. Auctioning a bottle of royal beer for the benefit of the Anglo-Soviet Unity Committee:

"ANGLO-SOVIET UNITY COMMITTEE, BURGH OF BUCKHAVEN AND METHIL. Offers for BOTTLE of CARLSBERG LAGER specially brewed in Copenhagen, Sept. 26 1932, in honour of visit of Prince of Wales, kindly presented to our fund Mr A. E. Leighton, East Dock Tavern, Methil. Sealed offers to be sent to Mr JOHN BRENNAN. 196 Den Walk. Buckhaven, not later than SAT. May 16, 1942."
Dundee Courier - Wednesday 06 May 1942, page 1.
Aned here's a slightly strange message of thanks:

"Denmark Tribute
GRACIOUS expression of Denmark's gratitude to Britain and her Allies for its liberation has been received by Messrs. A. S. Bartholomew Ltd., of High-street, Cheltenham.

From the Tuborg Breweries at Loebenhauen, Denmark, comes this telegram: "With deep gratitude and admiration the achievements of Great Britain and her Allies we in relieved Denmark are happy now to be able to express to you our sincere congratulations and best wishes."

Before the war Messrs. Bartholomew imported from the Danish Brewery, Tuborg Lager, but all connection with the firm was severed when the Germans occupied Denmark in 1940."
Gloucestershire Echo - Wednesday 30 May 1945, page 3.

And finally an advert heralding the rearrival of foreign Lager in Britain:

Taunton Courier, and Western Advertiser - Saturday 15 May 1948, page 3.
