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.

Thomas Christian Sneum

Thomas Christian Sneum escaped to England twice during the Second World War. In 1941 he made an epic flight to England with Kjeld Pedersen in a Hornet Moth. He later returns to Denmark as agent, but escaped again in the spring of 1942. Late in the war he joins the Royal Norwegian Air Force.

Paul Andersen

Paul Andersen enlisted in the RCAF in late 1942 and served as an air gunner in 44 (Rhodesia) Squadron in 1944. Andersen and his crew was killed in action returning from a minelaying operation over Danish waters in 15/16 July 1944.

Jens Eyvind Jensen Scott

Sgt Jens J. Scott served in the US Marine Corps in the Pacific. He was victim of a kamikaze attack on USS Bunker Hill on 11 May 1945.

Douglas Svend Fletcher

Douglas Svend Fletcher is born in Svendborg, Denmark. He enlists for the Royal Australien Air Force in 1943. I presume he was British and not Danish subject.
