Some 15,000 British Jewish veterans today marched in the annual Jewish Remembrance Day parade to pay respects to the Jewish men and women who died in Britain’s armed services.

The parade, in which units of Britain’s oldest and proudest regiments participated, was reviewed by R.A.F. Air Marshal Sir John Slessor. Services were conducted by British Chief Rabbi Israel Brodie and Rev. I. Levy, senior Jewish chaplain of the British armed services. Israel Minister Eliahu Elath was one of the guests of honor.
