See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Jewish men and women in refuge here from Rumania and Hungary today offered their services to Britain at a mass meeting following Britain’s declaration of war against these two countries.

A special body dealing with the affairs of Hungarian and Rumanian Jews has been established by the Jewish Refugee Committee, it was announced at the meeting. Stressing the fact that volunteers for military duty would enjoy the same status as British fighters and be free of alien restrictions, speakers declared that the military authorities would welcome the enlistment of Hungarian and Rumanian Jews who had proven their loyalty to Britain.
