May-July 1940. <br><br> V.Cukr was one of the Czech emigrant pilots, who fought for France and after the unhappy France campaign the survived were taken in Great Britain creating later the basis of Czech aerial units (RAF squadrons 310, 311, 312, 313 and parts of some more). What is not very known, the Czech fighter pilots downed circa 1/3 of German planes shot down by French Air Forces during battle of France campaign because of their much better professional quality and training than French pilots.)
