Jan Kubis was stationed at Moreton Paddox during ww2. My mum lived there and hence the pic. The Czech soldiers were there for most of the war. Moreton paddox also had a visit from Winston Churchill. I have those pics too.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped it's much appreciated.

Just as a footnote if anyone is still reading this topic - he was slaughtered with the others in the crypt of a church in Prague after the assassination had been carried out.  There was another man, Bronislaw Kubis who was serving with the Polish Air Force and was killed in 1943 who looks very much like him and could easily be his brother.
