    Carl, in july, I met this man and I know him since last year, next year I must see the manager of the collections.
    They have so many things every where!
    Did you saw the last film on Anthropoid in Prague ?
    The collection is indeed a large one and I admire the manner in which it is rotated - so many museums simply stand still and let things lie in their storage areas...a shame...would be great to see the Heydrich car again one day...

    Yes, we recently caught the new movie and all thought it is a very good effort, despite one or two slight issues I had with it...overall, for me it was really good.

    Within Prague Army Museum, the section dedicated to the parachutists is currently limited. Some of the material still on display is shown below.

    1) A cartridge from Gabčk's Sten gun

    2) Specially prepared bomb found at the assassination site by the Gestapo in a discarded briefcase owned by Jan Kubi. A British made Mk.I No.73 Anti-Tank grenade front section and fuse was used, with Kubi affixing ca 800g of British plastic explosive inside using cloth tape

    3) Shovels used by members of Operation Anthropoid

    4) Tram ticket found in the jacket pocket of Jan Kubi - amazingly, not discovered until 2002

    5-6) Photographs of seven members of the group involved in Anthropoid

    Not so far from this church, another : the priest was sent to KL after this operation, in 1945 the Soviet Army released the camp, in 1948 they put him in a camp and he died fool in 1951.

    In the area, a small convent and many of the monks were also sent to camps...I discovered this last year.

    Not one I am familiar with, no.

    There is a fine work addressing the era of the Protektorat by MacDonald and Kaplan, Prague In The Shadow Of The Swastika - an excellent pick up for anybody with an interest in the events and materials of the time or indeed with a view to visiting the related sites.

    Hi Carl,
    It was produced by the Czech Ministry of Defence in 2001, it was not for sale, my new Czech friend in Ypres, Belgium, has sent me a copy today in pdf format, she works with the Czechoslovak Legionaries Association, It has some great photo's of the assassins at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire in 1940, its only down the road from where I live.

    It was compiled by Michal BURIAN, Ale KN͎EK, Jiř RAJLICH, Eduard STEHLK

    I could email you a copy if you like

    Cheers

    Great pictures Nick, I have seen the film 3 times now myself, despite its major flaws I enjoyed it, I find it quite moving and thought provoking, the first time I saw it I actually sat for a while at the end contemplating what had just been depicted.
    I will be visiting this year, will be a memorable moment
