    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 Gabčík's Sten gun

    2) Specially prepared bomb found at the assassination site by the Gestapo in a discarded briefcase owned by Jan Kubiš. A British made Mk.I No.73 Anti-Tank grenade front section and fuse was used, with Kubiš 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 Kubiš - amazingly, not discovered until 2002

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