A rather large number of Danish men and women joined the air forces during the Second World War. Many paid the ultimate price. This site commemorates these young people. Read one of the profiles, articles or more about the site.
At the outbreak of war, Frede J. Florentsen is studying in Glasgow, Scotland. Finishing his studies later that year, he volunteers for Royal Air Force in the beginning of 1941. He is in service until the end of the war.
In 1943 the pilot and author Clauson Kaas publishes a book entitled Danish aviators in the air. An appendix lists all then trained army and navy pilots. During the period 1935-1939 a total of 26 pilots are trained in the small Danish navy air service. I have been looking into the path taken by these pilots during the following years.
