    (Feldwebel) Škoda is indeed a Czech name. It is the name of the well known vehicle manufacturer, widely mispronounced as "S-code-a". It should be pronounced "Shhko-da". The word is also used in a popular phrase, "to je Škoda", which translates as "it's a pity". Thank you for bringing this to our attention Jan, it is certainly interesting.

    My partner is a native of Prague, so we spend a lot of our time in the Czech Republic. I am currently looking out of the window at the grey sky over Prague, wondering if spring will ever arrive...

    Oh Paul, I noticed you wondered why he did not receive the RK... I read that he was more times nominated but never received that because disagreed with SS practics.. And also had some fights with his superiors from the same reason...

    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
