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.

Hans Mikkelsen Uldall

Hans Mikkelsen Uldall is naturalized in Canada in 1942. His profession is stated as "pilot". I have very little information on him, and I am uncertain about his relation to RCAF on the basis of his age, but has included him in this list.

Hans Christian Madsen

Hans Christian Madsen is one of a small number of Danish pilots who volunteers for the Malayan Volunteer Air Force during the Second World War. He is captured by the Japanese and is sent to the notorious Burma-Siam Railway also known as the "Death Railway."

Anders Pedersen Kolding

Anders P. Kolding was one of the Danish volunteers in the Royal Canadian Air Force. The nature of his service is not known.

Jens Aage Nielsen

Jens Aage Nielsen’s path into allied service is fascinating. Unemployed he moved from Denmark to Germany to work in 1938. In March 1941, he worked onboard the factory ship, MS Hamburg when a British led commando force raided Lofoten. His ship was sunk, and Nielsen returned to Scapa Flow with the commandos. Following interrogation in London by MI5, he volunteered for the Norwegian air force.
