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.

Mylius Erik Ulstrup Christiansen

LAC Mylius E. U. Christensen served as a guard and later as a cook in the Royal Australian Air Force. He was born in Copenhagen, but arrived in Australia as a seaman in 1925. The information available seems to indicate that he was naturalised in Australia after the war and, thus, Danish subject at enlistment.

Viola H Wollard (née Hansen)

Pvt. Viola H. Wollard enlisted in the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) in 1943. She was one of twenty-nine Danish born WACs during the Second World War.

Ib Anders Hedegaard-Schou

Ib Hedegaard-Schou was part of the merchant navy when Denmark was occupied in April 1940. He volunteered for the Norwegian Air Force in Canada until 1944. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1946 and served until May 1947.
