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.

Asger Laursen

Asger Laursen is one of a small number of Danish pilots who volunteers for the Malayan Volunteer Air Force during the Second World War. He ends the war in a Japanese prisoner of war camp on Java.

Kjeld Christian Johan Pedersen

Kjeld C.J. Pedersen is trained as pilot in the Danish Naval Air Service before the outbreak of the war. In 1942 he manages to escape to Denmark in a D.H. Hornet Moth with his friend Thomas Sneum. He volunteers for the Royal Air Force and is in service in different squadrons until the end of the war flying Hurricanes and Spitfires.
