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.

Jørgen Billy Thalbitzer

Thalbitzer escaped Denmark in late 1940, and volunteered for the Royal Air Force in London in 1941. He was shot down over France in mid-1942 and became PoW. He escaped from Oflag XXI-B in March 1943, but died in the attempt to get to Sweden later that month.

Jørgen Kjeldbæk

Jørgen Kjeldbæk was one of many Danes abroad at the outbreak of war, working for the East Asia Company. He is evacuated from the Far East following the Japanese advance, and is trained as pilot in England in 1942.

Wolfgang Rudolf Fabian

Wolfgang Rudolf Fabian was born in Germany, since his birth town of Aabenraa was German at the time. In 1921, the larger part of Schleswig became Danish again and Aabenraa was united with the rest of Denmark.
