    Default MIROSLAV HAVLICEK - Czech Squadron 313

    Does anyone have any information on this man? I know he was with the Squadron 313 and briefly seconded to Sqadron 312 at Warmwell in early 1943. Can anyone help with further information?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you VERY much, Pavel.

    Do you have any other information? Do you know what he did before or after the War, whether he had any family?

    Regards, Chris

    Unfortunately I have no knowledge of any other settings. Maybe Paul (CZ_RAF). The business W / O Miroslav Havlicek before the war and the war would certainly get put on the Military History Institute Prague - Invalides (similar to Kew). His life after the war would certainly put to find. However, it is run for a long time. Short articles I found in three books.

    Hi Pavel,

    Other sources record Havlicek's date of birth as 21-11-1906. Could you confirm which one is correct; 21-1-1906 or 21-11-1906?

    Col.

    Hi Col,

    I have him also as born 21.11.1906 so maybe it was only a typo.
    I will check it out later as I have now my archive packed for moving.

    Hi Col,

    this is a very good source but anyway you need to be careful, sometimes there are also mistakes/typos.
