Ludvik Kosek Memorial Plaque unveiled

A memorial plaque was unveiled on 2 April 2016 for 311 Sqn pilot Ludvík Košek in his home town of Turnov.

Unveiling took place by the entrance to the Turnov Ice Rink; an appropriate location as he was noted as a good ice-hockey player in pre-WW2 Czechoslovakia.

The ceremony was well attended and included relatives of Ludvík Košek, Gen. Emil Boček, local dignitaries, representatives from the Czech Army, Defense Department regional military administration, various reenactment groups including Rotou Nazdar, and well wishers.

The ceremony commenced at 14:00 with speeches followed by the memorial plaque unveiling with wreaths and flowers then being placed by the plaque. The ceremony was concluded with a flypast by a American Piper Cub L4, with D-Day stripes, and a Russian Yak-3.

On display at the ceremony was a display of WW2 military vehicles, equipment and an exhibition about 311 Sqn.
