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 Ryhl Bineau

Jørgen Ryhl Bineau enlisted in the Royal Norwegian Air Force in 'Little Noway' during the Second World War. He was killed in action on 5 April 1945, shortly before the war ended.

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.

Marius Byrge Hanneval Haagensen

Marius Byrge Hanneval Haagensen is born in Denmark, but as his father is a naturalised British Subject in 1884. He volunteers for the Royal Australian Air Force and serves as telegraphist in a number of units.

Poul Bedey

Poul Bedey is one of a small number of Danish volunteers in the Malayan Volunteer Air Force during the Second World War. Records indicate that he tries to volunteer for the Royal Air Force in 1942 having escaped Malaysia.
