Bernhard Ingvar S. Mathisen

(1924 - n.a.)

Bernard Ingvar S. Mathisen is born in Aarhus, Denmark, in 1924, but is of Norwegian nationality. He volunteers for the Royal Norwegian Air Force in 1943.

Bernard Ingvar S. Mathisen is born on 20 May 1924 in Aarhus, Denmark. Though born in Denmark, he is Norwegian according to the U.S. immigration records, and therefore not among the Danes in Norwegian service as noted in Ancker (2001).

On 20 June 1943, he arrives in New York on-board S.S. OGNA. He had signed on in Montevideo on 13 May 1943 as had Hans Johan Gilje Birkeland. They are both discharged in New York and is later enlisted in the Royal Norwegian Air Force camp "Little Norway" in Toronto, Canada. According to my information he hold the rank of Private.
