In May 2010 we, the Free Czechoslovak Air Force Associates ltd, founded the www.fcafa.com website to provide an online English language resource of information about the Czechoslovak men and women who served in the RAF during WW2.
Since that foundation, we have published a wide range of articles – currently 584 – providing pertinent information on this subject – from personnel lists, autobiographies, biographies, historical background information, squadron histories, aircraft data, aircraft lists, locations of all the 513 fallen Czechoslovak RAF airmen and woman, to medals awarded, locations of Memorials and Memorial plaques around the world where Czechoslovak RAF personnel are commemorated.
We are pleased that the website has become the leading online resource about the Czechoslovak RAF men and women, with a worldwide readership, with many of our articles now also being in Czech. At the end of January 2017, the website reached the milestone of half a million pages read!
Additionally, we are pro-active in supporting Czechoslovak remembrance events, ceremonies and exhibitions, and have participated in numerous campaigns to ensure that the achievements and exploits of the Czechoslovak RAF men and women are better and correctly, known for the benefit of current and future generations. Our work has also included providing countless relatives with assistance in researching their Czechoslovak RAF relative – our archive is the largest resource for Czechoslovak RAF material outside the Czech and Slovak Republics.
This good work is all being achieved with the help of a small dedicated team of volunteers, from around the world – from researchers, translators, historians, Czechoslovak RAF relatives to photographers and graphic specialists – who assist us in many ways with their valuable time and resources.
So far all this has been achieved by privately funding or by donations, but to enable us to continue maintaining this high standard and to help open more avenues for our research, further financial support is needed.
Would you please consider donating to help us achieve this aim?
