    After the French defeat of the regiments withdrew back to Agde and from there, moved to evacuate into the Lion's gulf, to the port of Séte, where boarded into the holds of the egyptian cargo ship Rod El Farag and with her odpluly on June 27. 6. 1940 via Gibraltar to England. In Liverpool the port landed on 12. July 1940, from where they were transported by train to a military tent camp, in the county of Cheshire-Cholmondeley near Chester. Here was in August officially presented to ms. a foreign army in England, in the rank of private and assigned to the connecting četě 2. battalion. After the listing underwent training in radio-telegraphy and signed up voluntarily to perform specific intelligence tasks in the homeland. On 27.10.1941 was sent to basic sabotage and úderný course STS -26 on the Scottish farm Cammus Darah, after his terminations from 24.11.1941 had paravýcvik on STS-51 in Ringway. 08.12.1941 was sent to cs. the station on the STS-2 in Bellasis, commanded by štkpt.

    Superiors was characterized as attentive, responsive and smart with exemplary behaviour. For its excellent results was included in the paraskupiny ZINC. Himself felt a certain handicap in its Slovak in the deployment in the area of Bohemia and asked for the deployment of intelligence tasks on the territory of Slovakia, the request was rejected, the situation in Slovakia under the command of officers has not yet been for the landing of Kingdom appropriate. During his tenure in the british isles was the other soldiers very popular, suffered, however, the complexes of their small stature and as one of the few he had no acquaintance among the English girls. The group of the ZINC has been together with the group , Out Distance was planted from the English base in the night from 27. on the 28. march 1942 on the territory of the protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. The commander of the team was npor. Oldřich Pechal, rtn. Arnošt Mikš and Viliam Gerik held in the group function telegrafisty, was equipped with a false id card on the name of William Gertík.

    The task of the group was to establish a connection with the VRÚ, the reporting activity in space buchlovských forests and Uherské Hradiště, the organization and management of sabotage actions in a given space. Give them 3 collector address. The group was due to a navigation error, it was planted instead of at the foot of the moravia Chřiby, the moravian-Slovak border with the Slovak municipality of Gbely. Parachutes and radios (this was about 3 radio sets LINDEN) keep it in an abandoned hayloft and started for the west, Moravia. The group carried in suitcases only funds - 3 million in occupying the tops and markách and agency station MARK 5. When crossing over showed the advantage of his nation and with his help the group properly reached the guarded borders. At the copper sulfate is therefore divided and the master followed behind them. Just at the borders of the group failed to come together and Gerik with Mikšem crossed themselves at Rohatec and train to get to Buchlovice, where they eventually succeeded with the commander, who had in crossing borders, the big problems come together. From Buchlovice were trying to establish a connection, but found that the station is damaged. The commander in this situation decided to send a Mikše with Gerikem to Prague, where they try to establish contact with the resistance movement at the contact addresses. To Prague rode the first Gerik and with Mikšem should meet at the agreed place.

    The reporting department Ms. troops in England had at the time of the training Gerika the absolute minimum information on the real situation in the Protectorate, no one knew about the disclosure of lots of addresses, in which they were paratroopers odkazováni. Didn't know neither about the factual destruction of all the major resistance groups. Intelligence officers were unable to estimate the extent of the collaboration and the fear that in 3 years of occupation proved to Germany in the Protectorate of unleash. Extensive executions of entire families of collaborators of the resistance movement reliably managed to discourage a lot of people from any motives to help. The Czech gendarmerie actively zapojovalo in the fight against the so-called agents and the number giving and the various notice, which was sent with an empire of loyal citizens to their neighbors, surprised said to himself Haydricha. The German army on all fronts successfully progressed and in the Czech republic in the framework of the carrot and stick method being implemented for the workers a lot of positive measures for the improvement of their standard of living. Many had resigned itself to the situation and began to her benefit.

    In this atmosphere of 2. in April 1942, Viliam Gerik arrived in Prague, attempted to capture the contact address, but was from all decisively rejected with the recommendation, whether he would prefer to be alone logs, thus saving other people from disaster. The young Slovak was negatively received even by the honest-minded people, after all, was a national of a nation that in 1939, betrayed Czechoslovakia and now successfully fought alongside the Wehrmacht on the soviet front, and rightly so feared the provocation by the Gestapo. In London they said that everywhere will be enthusiastically accepted and so far it all thrown out, although begged for food. Gerik has wandered already the second day in Prague with pockets full of cash, but I couldn't without a food stamp to buy even bread, he was hungry, disappointed and desperate. On the agreed appointment with Mikš re-appear and Gerik had to přespávat under the bridge. Day 4. in April 1942, was utterly exhausted and hungry Gerik himself enrolled at the Police headquarters in Prague, asked as a Slovak national of transportation to Slovakia, but was immediately handed over to the prague document office of the Gestapo. On his corpse it got in charge of the investigator of the gestapo, Oskar Fleischer, who perfectly managed to guess the young inexperienced Gerika, and although he was renowned for his rudeness, he proved it to the contrary break with your tenderness, which made him so much received from members of the nation which had flown from England to help. Broken the young man him into divulging not only the details of the training in England, but also the composition of the other groups, which in the same night was planted OUT to the DISTANCE and mainly the details of hiding their radios in Slovakia and the details of the remaining two members of the ZINCU.

    The Gestapo tried to use Gerika in the role of troublemaker view like Čurdu, it turned out that this activity is completely inappropriate. After a successful disposal of the suicide bombers in the church of st. Cyril and Methodius is Fleischerovi managed to enforce the payment of half of the listed rewards 5 million crowns on the Gerikovo account at the Kreditanstalt der Deutschen and at the same time he arranged lodgings for Milady Lebdušákové in Templové street 7, Prague 1. He was deployed on the footprint of the groups of the BIVOUAC and BIOSCOP, assigned tasks, however, performed very unwillingly and their implementation do avoided, in tasks has also tried to odbojářům help. At that time, began intensively to plan your getaway to Hungary or to Switzerland, from where he wanted to get back to London. The Gestapo he had ceased to trust and got him the famous agent Augustin Přeučil, who impersonated odbojového worker, and who is naive Gerik, hoping in his help, confided. 6. April 1943 was the Gestapo arrested, in July he was imprisoned under the name of Václav Novák in Prague's pankrác prison, then taken to Terezin and from there 28.10.1943 to the concentration camp in Dachau. In Dachau, he got the department of corrections radiopřijímačů. About his involvement in KT there is no information, we can assume that acquiesced with the situation and so he lived to see the end of the war. 23. may 1945 in the context of the repatriation of the prisoners of Dachau came back Gerik to Prague. The bank, in which he had his account had been closed and his digs at the p. Lebdušákové cast.

    24. in may 1945, he signed up for the News department of the col. Palečka and was arrested.

    11. June 1945 he managed to flee from the custody of the Military court in Prague Uršulinkách and tried to get to his friends for the connecting column of the 1. ms. armoured brigade, from which he hoped, that they will believe in his nevinnu and a good effort and in the ensuing situation would help him, well aware that in the post war period will be difficult to defend and threatened him with the punishment of the highest. For not long since the escape, he was arrested in Nasavrkách. Was tried for a military treason, collaboration and other crimes and sentenced to death.

    30.April 1947 at 11.45 am, he was executed by hanging (12 minutes before the traitor Čurdou)
