Mirko Janecek

With much sadness that we must advise the death on 9 January 2017 of Mirko Janeček, aged 90.

Mirko was not a Czechoslovak RAF airman but a journalist, who like many others escaped from his homeland after the Communist take-over in February 1948. From Mississauga, Ontario, Canada he founded and was editor of ‘Kanadské listy’ a Czech language newspaper for the ex-pat community in particular for the former Czechoslovak RAF and Army personnel who had also escaped following that Communist take-over and were now in exile around the world. His work over many years with ‘Kanadské listy’ provided a valuable resource for that Czechoslovak ex-pat community.

Our Condolences and thoughts are with his family.
