    Night Fighter / Noční stíhač, a poem by Alois Volek dedicated to his combatants in RAF.
    Dejte mu dobrou noc
    a šťastnou cestu
    pak odletí, když spěje na půlnoc
    tak jako pro nevěstu.
    Vzal sebou kříž
    nočního stíhače
    přisedl smrti blíž
    se slovy rouhače.
    Dejte mu s Bohem
    vylétá ke hvězdám
    motor žhne vysokým stonem
    a on je sám…
    He took the cross of the night fighter
    Sitting near death with the bloody words
    There is no mercy, darkness is silent
    And the stars so suddenly move
    Into dying so they are going to kill.
    A. Volek wrote these verses in August 1943 in Beaulieu.
