A historical and philatelic study

by

Richard Beith FRPSL




Monograph 30 completes a series of three monographs covering the Czechoslovak Forces in the West between 1939 and 1945: No. 26 (France 1939-1940), No. 27 (The Czechoslovak Independent Armoured Brigade in France 1944-1945 and their return home) and this new volume. All three monographs have separate ‘historical ‘and ‘philatelic’ chapters, academic footnotes and bibliographies.

The new volume is divided in two parts:

I The Czechoslovak Army-in-Exile in the United Kingdom
II Czechoslovaks in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve

Part II includes a chapter on the previously neglected philatelic topic of the airmen training in Canada and The Bahamas.

Monograph 30 contains viii + 160 = 168 pages, A4, full colour.
