Tribute to Scotland’s Jewish citizens was paid today by the Earl of Airlie at a function at which Glasgow Jewish ex-service men entertained 1,000 members of the British Legion after their parade.

“I have the greatest admiration,” he said, “for the great Jewish people.

“In the war their record was magnificent, and in peace they are an example to all.”
