Welcome to my website Czechoslovak Airmen in the RAF 1940-1945

Thank you for visiting this website and I hope that you find your visit beneficial. 

This revised website was launched in March 2015 and has evolved  from my original site https://cz-raf. which I began in April 1999.

This website, like its predecessor, is dedicated to the memory of all the Czechoslovak men and women in the RAF, or WAAF’s, during the Second World War.

Whilst my interest is primarily focused on the Czechoslovaks who served in the RAF in the United Kingdom, it also extends to airmen of Czechoslovak origin who served in other Air Forces as well, the Royal Canadian Air Force is an example. Of this subject my speciality and  personal interest is on No. 311 (Czechoslovak) Bomber Squadron in the RAF.

If you have anything from these things
