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.

Henner Friser Frederiksen

Henner Friser Frederiksen was employed by the East Asiatic Company in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur before the war. He volunteered for the Malayan Volunteer Air Force in late 1940 and was mobilised in December 1941. He served with the air force until the retreat from Java in February 1942.

Elsie Helen Rude (née Toye)

Elsie Helen Rude (née Toye) volunteered for the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force in 1941. She was commissioned in 1942 and was promoted to Flight Officer before the end of the war. In 1943, she married Hans Gunnar Rude and, thus, became one of the Danish WAAFs.

Erik Flohr Jacobsen

Erik Flohr Jacobsen enlisted in the Royal Air Force in 1942 and was trained as fighter pilot. He was killed in late May 1944 during a low-level attack on a train in Brittany, France.

Hans Mikkelsen Uldall

Hans Mikkelsen Uldall is naturalized in Canada in 1942. His profession is stated as "pilot". I have very little information on him, and I am uncertain about his relation to RCAF on the basis of his age, but has included him in this list.
