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.

Prince Jacques de Bourbon-Parma

Prince Jacques de Bourbon-Parma was trained as pilot in the Norwegian Air Force in Canada, but did not finish training before the war ended. He was a French citizen, but was related to the Danish, and thus also Norwegian, royal family.

Doris Augusta Marie Jensen

Doris Jensen became the first Danish stewardess, when she joined Danish Air Lines in July 1938. She was onboard the last flight to London in April 1940. Unable to return before after the war, she served in the Women’s Land Army.

Henning Valentiner

Henning Valentiner is one of few Danish naval pilots in the Royal Navy during the Second World War.
