Name of “king of Lampedusa” to Be Inscribed in JNF Golden Book in Jerusalem

The name of Sgt. Sydney Cohen, the young Jewish RAF pilot who secured the surrender of the Italian island of Lampedusa when he was forced to land there because his fuel supply had run out, will be inscribed in the Jewish National Fund’s “Golden Book” in Jerusalem, it was announced here today. At the same time, it was suggested that the JNF set aside a special page in the book for men and women who have distinguished themselves in military service.
