RAF Museum marks Czechoslovak pilots in Battle of Britain
The Royal Air Force Museum in London is honouring Czechoslovak and Polish involvement in the Battle of Britain with a new exhibition. ‘Brother’s in Arms’ salutes the dispossessed Polish and Czechoslovak pilots of WWII, who the museum says were arguably the RAF’s most prolific and successful pilots in the campaign. Drawings, archive film footage and sculptures are on display to recall individuals such as fighter pilot Josef František and the men of 303 Squadron. Another section covers the fate of the Czechoslovak and Polish RAF pilots who were persecuted by the Communist regime upon returning home.
