This may get you started:

(* date bounds: (adjust to suit) *)
d1={1920,1,8};
d2={1920,1,12};

(* f puts a date into (nearly) the format you want (no leading zeros) *)
f[d_]:=Apply[StringJoin,Riffle[RotateLeft[Map[ToString[#]&,d]],"/"]];

(* g makes a list of dates, formatted by g *)
g[d1_,d2_]:=Map[f[#]&,Table[DatePlus[d1,k],{k,0,DateDifference[d1,d2],1}]];

(* makes your list: *)
dates[d1,d2]
