English

This cache is dedicated to the memory of wing commander Otto Jebacek, member of the No. 311 Czechoslovak Squadron RAF and the citizen of Kurim.

Otto Jebacek was born on 10th June 1918 in Kurim. He attended the local primary school at Komenskeho street (GC157PV). It is said that he played the saw well.

The way he escaped from German-occupied Czechoslovakia is not clear. In 1941 he entered military training at the Operational Training Flight of No. 311 Czechoslovak Squadron. After its termination on 2nd February 1942 he continued at the same squadron as a Wireless Operator - Air Gunner on Vickers Wellington Mk.IC bombers.

Trio of Wellington Mk.ICs belonging to No. 311 Czechoslovak Sqd.

At that time No. 311 Squadron belonged to the Bomber Command and engaged enemy targets in the occupied Europe. Because of high losts the squadron was assigned to the Coastal Command and transfered to the North of England to reorder in April 1942. Within operational flights for Coastal Command Czechoslovak airmen defended the sea against German submarines attacking allied fleet. One of these flights became deathly for Otto Jebacek.

On 15th September 1942 his Wellington with code marking KX-Y ev.num. HD982 did not return from the operational flight over the Bay of Biscay. Otto Jebacek is remembered on the pannel no. 86 in Runnymede Memorial in England and on the small monument nearby Primary school at Komenskeho street in Kurim. During his operating in the Royal Air Force he reached rank of flight sergeant. In 1991 he was promoted in memoriam to the rank of wing commander.
