Poul Sommer

Much has been written on the Danes that joined Waffen-SS during the Second World War. Considering their numbers this is obvious. Less attention has been paid to the rather small number of pilots, who joined Luftwaffe. Of these Hauptmann Poul Sommer is the most well known; not the least because he returned to Denmark in 1943 to become leader of the Wachkorps der Luftwaffe in Dänemark. Hence, the corps is also known as Sommer’s Corps.

Hans Andersen

Hans Andersen is one of the Danes who volunteers for the Royal Canadian Air Force. He serves an Aero Engine Mechanic.
