Generals Ludvík Svoboda, Karel Klapálek, Antonín Hasal and Bohumil Boček are carrying a coffin with their friend and another General, Jaroslav Vedral, the highest ranking Czechoslovak officer that was killed during World War 2. Vedral led the First Brigade (in the Battle of the Dukla Pass), which successfully penetrated the Carpathian Mountains and crossed the Polish-Slovak state border. Vedral’s jeep ran onto a land mine and he was buried right at the Dukla Pass.
