tn-470801-Exp-edit

On Saturday 1st August a newly-formed group ‘Forgotten British Heroes Campaign’, will hold a wreath-laying ceremony near Trafalgar Square, London, in remembrance of Jewish terrorist attacks on British servicemen, Crown servants and civilians in the late 1940s.

The wreath-laying ceremony will take place at the site of the British Colonies Club, which was bombed by members of the Irgun terrorist group on 7th March 1947. The building was partly demolished and numerous people were injured and maimed.

The wreath-laying, followed by a short public meeting at the site, will commence at about 4.00 pm

A private meeting will take place on Saturday evening, including the showing of a film by Lady Michèle Renouf with interviews of former British servicemen who fought Jewish terrorism in Palestine, 1945-48.

The evening meeting will be chaired by Jez Turner of the London Forum, a veteran of the Royal Corps of Signals. Other speakers will include H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton; Richard Edmonds; and Martin Webster.

The ceremony will also commemorate:

• the two 20 year old British Army sergeants, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin, who were kidnapped in Palestine by Menachem Begin, head of the Irgun terrorists, and then on 31st July 1947 were hanged with piano wire in the eucalyptus groves at Netanya. Their bodies were booby-trapped in the hope of killing those who came to cut the bodies down;

• the 100 British Army personnel, Crown servants and civilians who were murdered by means of a huge bomb planted by the Irgun in the basement of the King David Hotel, Jerusalem, on 22nd July 1946;

• the murder by parcel-bomb in May 1948, in Britain, of Rex Farran, brother of Captain Roy Farran DSO, MC — an SAS anti-terrorism specialist. Rex opened the parcel addressed to “R. Farran” at the Farran family home;

• the murder of Walter Edward Guinness (Baron Moyne) DSO, & Bar, Secretary of State for the Colonies, and his British Army driver, Corporal Fuller, on 6th November 1944. The hand-gun assassinations were carried out in Cairo by the Lehi Zionist terrorist group (a.k.a. “the Stern Gang”);

• the massacre of Arab civilian villagers at Deir Yassin, Palestine, in a combined operation by the Irgun and the Lehi on 10th April 1948.

On the day of this commemoration the Israeli Ambassador in London, Daniel Taub, will receive a letter from the Campaign recollecting the details of the above and other Zionist atrocities which continue until this day, and demanding, among other things, that Israel pay compensation to the victims of Zionist terrorism and their families, build a ‘Museum of Zionist Terrorism’ in Jerusalem and institute courses about Zionist terrorism in Israel’s schools as a warning to future generations.

The letter is signed by Martin Webster, Richard Edmonds, Jeremy Turner, Lady Michèle Renouf, and Peter Rushton.

Copies of the text of the letter will be sent on request.
