CZECHOSLOVAKIAN SOE memorial

The Czechoslovakian SOE memorial at Arisaig commemorates the Czechoslovak troops in exile who trained in the area during WW2 as part of SOE (Special Operations Executive).  Czech Jan Kubiš and Slovak Jozef Gabčík went on to carry out Operation Anthropoid, the assassination of SS Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich in Prague on 27th May 1942. They died, or committed suicide, in a subsequent shoot-out, when German troops surrounded a church they were hiding in.

Czechoslovakia has been two sovereign states, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, since 1993.
