Ninety-year-old Ida Schuster became the first woman to lay a wreath on behalf of Glasgow Ajex at its annual Remembrance parade on Sunday. Mrs Schuster, a former WAF, said: "My late husband, Dr Alan Berkeley, was a prisoner of war in Japan and I was delighted to be asked to lay the wreath." The parade of about 80 people was led by the Glasgow Jewish Lads' and Girls' Brigade band. It marched from the cenotaph at Mearns Cross to Newton Mearns Synagogue where Rabbi Raphael Bokov of Queens Park and Clarkston Synagogue, led the service.
