Danish WW2 Pilots


The nucleus of this site is the individual profiles of each person I have been able to find that was in air force service during the war. The profiles can be accessed though the alphabetical index.

Poul Bent Heilmann

Poul Bent Heilmann is one of a small number of Danish volunteers in the Malayan Volunteer Air Force during the Second World War.

Werner Jungløv

Werner Jungløv joins the Royal Norwegian Air Force during the Second World War. He is trained as navigator, but I have no record of any operational flying duty in the Norwegian squadrons in this capacity. Instead he is attached to the Royal Air Force Transport Command as navigator.

Charles Gordon Olsen is born in United Kingdom. He joins the Royal Air Force in May 1940 and is trained as wireless operator and air gunner.

Milan Martiny

Milan Martiny served in the South African army in Abyssinia and Egypt before being selected for training as fighter pilot. He was killed in a training flight near Pretoria on 6 September 1943.
