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.

Frede Johannes Florentsen

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.

Andreas Moldt Petersen

Andreas Petersen is one of the few Danes to join the Royal Canadian Air Force. He served as air gunner in 166 Squadron completing a tour of operations.

Helga Søndergaard Jensen

Helga Søndergaard Jensen was one of the Danish women who served in the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force during the Second World War. She had gone to England in 1938.

Neil Hyland Svendsen

Although mentioned in Ancker (2006) is one of the Danes in allied air force service, I have no indication suggesting that Neil Hyland Svendsen was in fact Danish. On the contrary.
