    Danish WW2 Pilots

Kjeld Christian Johan Pedersen

Kjeld C.J. Pedersen is trained as pilot in the Danish Naval Air Service before the outbreak of the war. In 1942 he manages to escape to Denmark in a D.H. Hornet Moth with his friend Thomas Sneum. He volunteers for the Royal Air Force and is in service in different squadrons until the end of the war flying Hurricanes and Spitfires.

Alf Aggersbøl

One of a number of Danish officers enlisting for Luftwaffe in 1941, Alf Aggersbøl apparently fails to be accepted for active service. He returns to the Army Air Corps.

Danish Volunteer Pilots in Malaysia

A small number of Danes working in the plantation industry in Malaysia in the 1930s volunteers in 1940-41 for the Malayan Volunteer Air Force – a small force that support the allied forces in South-East Asia during the 1941-42 campaign.
