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.

John Friis Lauesen

John Friis Lauesen was born in Denmark, but naturalised in the USA before the Second World War. He lost his life in September 1944, when his P-51 was shot down by flak over Germany. He was one of three brothers, all pilots, who was killed during the war.

Kaj Olaf Mortensen

Kaj Olaf Mortensen arrived in New Zealand in late 1940 onboard the four-masted barque Pamir. He enlisted in the RNZAF in 1943, but seems to have served in the Army as well.

Oluf Martiny

Oluf Martiny volunteers for the South African Air Force during the Second World War, but I have very few information on his service.
