Ten members of a British parachute regiment, stationed in Palestine, today made a public apology for “the mean and detestable conduct” of ten other paratroopers who are alleged to have humiliated a Jewish resident of Jerusalem formerly in the Royal Air Force. The apology was made in a signed letter published in the “Palestine Post.”
