Here are pictures from events attend by living history group 276th Sqdn. (reenacted) RAF or our members:
We were invited to attend commemoration of 70th anniversary of battle of Britain in Jihlava, organised by colleagues from Czech Spitfire Club.
Our friends from polish RAF reenactors group invited us to Krakow, to attend air show there. That both groups made interesting display dedicated to Czechoslovak and Polish airmen and airwomen in WW2.
Because we were in Krakow, city important for history of our WW2 resistance, we wisited Male Bronowice, former camp of Czechoslovak future soldiers, Rynek Główny or dom turystyczny, where were our future soldiers accomodated before theirs transport to France or outbreak of WW2. Of course, we visited Wawel too.
It is our honor, that our member, Milan Vacek, took part in realisation of the Museum of Ludvík Hynek in small village Ratiboř near Vsetín. This museum is place in former shelter of underground movement in WW2, where Hynek´s family covered underground freedom fighters. Ratiboř is in Beskydy Mountais, where were deep forests and because of it many covered freedom fighters.This part is history is commemorated by many monuments in this region. But..one of this monument is dedicated to victims of fight of two underground freedom fighters group….History is not narrow sometimes.
