I am trying to find out about a Czech army base. Don't know when it was first set up but it was active in 1945. It was situated at Chalkwell (on Sea), I think at St Edith's school. I have been unable to find any mention of it anywhere, also tried Kew Archives. Made contact with one person whose father was also there, but like me all his leads dried out. He suspected that there was some kind of undercover ops there, which may be correct. I know my father was previously commissioned and working for the British Army abroad before arriving in Dover, I am told he also paid many visits to the Czech Embassy in London whilst stationed at Chalkwell & Leigh on Sea. I have a photo from those days, a group of soldiers standing out a building shown as 109/H5. Any pointers in the right direction really appreciated.

Welcome to the forum, Cheryl. If you are on Facebook, have a look at "Czechoslovak Soldiers and Airmen in War". Most of the text is in Czech but a request in English for information might get some answers.
Dave.
