Czech Memorial Fountain
Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, England

The Czech Memorial Fountain, unveiled in 1968. Its purpose is to honour those who served in the Czech Free Army, which was based in the town, especially seven men who were parachuted into Czechoslovakia for the assassination of SS-Obergruppenführer Reinhard T. E. Heydrich. It is located in the gardens of the Jephson Memorial which is seen in the background.
(Another memorial is located in Prague at the Church of Saints Cyril and Methodius.)
