    Danish WW2 Pilots

Douglas Svend Fletcher

Douglas Svend Fletcher is born in Svendborg, Denmark. He enlists for the Royal Australien Air Force in 1943. I presume he was British and not Danish subject.

André Knud Sonnichsen

André Knud Sonnichsen enlists for the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1941, and becomes master of a RCAF Marine Craft. I have little information on his service though.

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.

Danish Volunteers in the Winter War

The Soviet Union attacked Finland on 30 November 1939. People all over the world were appalled by the aggression. To many Danes it was an inexcusable attack on a neutral country and a sister nation.
