The number of Jews in the Polish Army has increased substantially, official figures published today by the Polish Government-in-Exile reveal.

In the Polish military units in the Middle East, recently inspected by Gen. Sikorski, the Polish Premier, there are more than 3,300 Jewish officers and men. A large number of Jews are also serving with the Polish forces in Scotland, constituting a considerable percentage of the total number in service.
