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.

Guttorm Bouet

Guttorm Bouet is attached to the Danish forces in Sweden in 1944-45. He was trained as pilot in the Army Air Services before the war and he returns to the Army following the Liberation.

Edlef Petersen

Edlef Petersen is one of the Danish men who volunteer for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Following VE-day he is transferred to Europe as translator. It seems likely that he was posted to Denmark.

Adrian E. Anholm

Adrian Eric Anholm was born in Yorkshire in 1924 in a Danish-British family. He served in the Royal Air Force during the war, and was awarded the Christian X Memorial Medal after the war. This medal was only awarded to Danish nationals.
