The Arbroath Herald of Friday 6th November 2009 reports in its pages that on Sunday 8th November 2009 a new Memorial will be unveiled at ARISAIG to the Czech and Slovak soldiers who trained as SOE Agents in Scotland during WW2 .

SOE allocated special training schools for Czechoslovaks near Loch Morar

The first operation listed - Operation Anthropoid - was the code name for the assassination of SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich, leading Nazi and Reichsprotektor of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

Although the date is given as 1941 on the stone, the assasination was carried out in Prague on 27th May 1942. The two agents Jozef Gabčík and Jan Kubiš, who are both listed on the memorial, were parachuted into Czechoslovakia in December 1941, so the date on the memorial must be from the start of the mission.

Regards

Adam

I bought a wee booklet from the Information Centre which probably explains everything, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet.

I was a bit unsure which section to post the photos is, so as there was an existing thread I just added them to it.

I moved this over to Highlands - Unit Memorials section after you added the photographs.

Kind regards
