    Default Danish volunteers in MVAF 1941-42

    Following tips from and collaboration with Dennis Burke and Martin Gleeson I have found 5, maybe 6 (to me) new Danish pilots in the Malayan Volunteer Air Force (1941-42). Just wanted to share the story and - as always - use the opportunity to ask if anyone has further information.

    Compared to other Danish volunteer stories this is a bit more "exotic" and concerns an air force that I had never encountered before some weeks ago.

    Hi Mikkel

    I have written about the MVAF in 'Bloody Shambles' and also have a potted but fairly detailed history of the unit. If really interested I can send you a copy but will need your postal address (too poor to scan). You can contact on:

    Paul,
    Yes, but even better a have a physical copy at home, which included the pages missing in the Google Books copy. But thank you for the reference.

    Brian,
    Yes, I would be very interested. I have already used "Bloody Shambles" as reference, but I'll send you an e-mail.
