The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

While re­search­ing the ori­gin of the an­nual Ajex pa­rade, I came across this on page 202 of Jewish Lon­don on sale at the Jewish Mu­seum: “In 1919 a mem­ber of the royal fam­ily over­heard a re­mark sug­gest­ing that the Jews did not serve enough dur­ing WWI. The king asked the Chief Rabbi to ar­range a pa­rade by Jewish ser­vice­men to show this was not the case”.

Nei­ther Ajex, Chief Rabbi Hertz’s records nor those of King Ge­orge V at Wind­sor Cas­tle, can find any­thing in sup­port of this claim. Would any­one who­can to cor­rob­o­rate the story con­tact me? Alan Secker 209 Al­bury Drive, Pin­ner, Mid­dle­sex
