• Short Summary

    Jewish ex-servicemen and women in London Remembrance parade for fallen comrades.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "London. The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Thousands of Jewish Ex-Service men & women attend great Remembrance Service for fallen Comrades."

    (Title features Hebrew script of the Biblical quotation)


    Men in civilian dress march past the Cenotaph war memorial in London's Whitehall. Lots of wreaths have been placed at the base of the memorial.

    Large parade of ex servicemen and veterans (possibly on Horseguards Parade). C/U veterans being inspected, by unidentified VIP. Women are also amongst those being inspected, they too are wearing medals.

    Quick shot of Rabbi speaking. Pan across crowd. Many with heads bowed in prayer. The Rabbi is making a prayer for peace. He then speaking in Hebrew and translation appears super imposed over shots of the Rabbi and crowd.

    Words reads: May there be abundant peace from heaven and life for us and for all Israel; and say ye, Amen. - He who maketh peace in his high places, may he 'make peace for us all and for all Israel; and say ye, Amen."

    A military band play as people sing. Four Guardsmen in bearskins play the last post. Crowd shots as they stand silently. Cut back to soldiers as they finish playing their bugles.

    This Jewish Ex-Service Parade continues to this day every year on the Sunday after the National Remembrance Day, in Whitehall and Horseguards Parade. Over 150,000 British and Commonwealth Jews and Jews from Israel have served in two World Wars and other conflicts in Defence of the UK, and approx 8,000 have been killed, including 1,000 from Israel. 25% of the International Brigade who fought Franco, were Jews, yet we are a tiny proportion of the populations of most nations where Jews live. The Jewish record is very similar for most other nations where Jews live/have lived. 25,000 Jews have died in the Defence of Israel snce 1948
