    Muj pradedecek Vladimír Horský take bojoval v Bitve o Britanii jako stihaci pilot 310 squadrony. Bohuzel tyden po tom co nastoupil na letiste v Britanii do bojove sluzby byl sestrelen a zabit v roce 1940. Domnivam se, ze kazdy takovyto hrdina, ktery polozil svuj zivot za to abychom tu nemeli vsude nacismus. Vsichni tito hrdinove by zaslouzily in memorian nejvyssi ceske vyznamenani za hrdinstvi a neuveritelnou odvahu.
