Thanks, Iceflower.

I can add that the Hunter's Association (there is basically one one here in DK) is, in contrast to other countries, growing. The new members are very much people who live in the cities and not least young women.
The most common reason for joining, and becoming a hunter, is a wish to get closer to the nature and the wildlife. - You can get a lot of experiences simply by sitting and waiting.

In other countries hunters are subjected to quite a good deal of resentment, but not here in DK. Presumably because the country is so small that everyone know someone who hunt. It's difficult to vilify a group of people, if you uncle and older sister are among them.
Another reason IMO opinion is that there is a pretty unsentimental approach to hunting here in DK. There is no attempt to hide what it is all about - killing animals and why. Nor is there any "lion-king spin" on hunting.
School and kindergarten children routinely visit hunters, see shot animals being broken up.
Just as importantly, and that I think is the main reason why Frederik accepted this, is that the association is very much dedicated to preservation and to maintaining and indeed increasing areas with "wild nature" as far as that is possible in a small country.
The Hunter's Association work closely with the nature preservation organizations as well as the fishing and ornithological associations keeping a close eye on the condition of wildlife and nature.

So without elevating hunters to saints, (they are not!) I think it's a good thing Frederik becomes their patron.

Yesterday, Frederik as patron, presened grants for the Anders Lassen Foundation.
The Anders Lassen Foundation is a non-profit foundation whose purpose is to reward special military efforts and support Danish injured soldiers

So far no pictures, last year the soldiers faces were covered.

Two photos from the Anders Lassen Foundation facebook

"On Thursday, 7. March 2019, the Anders Lassen Fund could award grants for 2018.The Protector of the fund, his royal highness, Crown Prince Frederik, handed over the grants to the eight recipients, who had been very successful in two very different events, and in their particular efforts to solve an important task
The two different events are described in the individual images, taking into account the operational safety that may be associated with the two events.
We have also chosen to blur the faces of those who solve operational tasks in defense or in other parts of the Danish preparedness."

Thanks, Polyesco.

An interesting choice of recipients.
The four persons in the first photo were involved in the Kim Wall murder. You may have heard about it abroad.
A Danish inventor, who among other things build his own mini-submarine, invited a Swedish journalist, Kim Wall, aboard his submarine and took her on a cruise out to sea with the purpose of killing her. I will not go into details about why and what he did, sufficient to say that she was chosen because he wanted to murder a women, any woman - in order to gratify his very special urges...
After his deed, he cut up the body and dumped it in open sea, then he deliberately sank his submarine in order to wash away any traces of the murder.
He did not succeed, and it was quickly clear to the police that Kim Wall was in all likelihood dead and somewhere on bottom of the strait between Denmark and Sweden.
But where? Even though the water is relative shallow, it's still a lot of sea! And they weren't even sure what course he had sailed after the murder.
In came Swedish cadaver-dogs and totally incredible they were able to smell some of the remains of Kim Wall above the surface of the sea, even though the body parts were at the sea floor!
And that's where the navy diving team came in, the divers being supplied from the Frogman Corps. It's difficult to find anything on the seafloor, but they succeeded. All the body parts of Kim Wall were eventually found, and now the forensic team came in, they were the ones who were to establish exactly what had taken place, despite working on body-parts that had been under water.
And that's why the police officer in charge of the investigation, the forensic specialist, a diver from the Frogman Corps and the head of the navy diving team has been honored for their work in this very difficult investigation.

Kim Wall's family was present as well.

Her murderer is now serving an indefinite sentence, which de facto means incarceration for the rest of his natural life.

The second photo depicts three anonymous gentlemen from the Army Special Forces, the Jaeger Corps, and a foreign female officer.
